    One can expect several days of coverage in the aftermath of the Las Vegas shooting from our bloodthirsty media.
    They totally dropped Puerto Rico and now they're giving us wall-to-wall coverage of every angle, every facet, every single detail of the sick act of a crazed individual.
    I wonder if this will give copycats ideas.
    I have no intention of watching this shit.

    Somebody let me know when it's over.

    Wiggling shiny things in front of the baby is the nature of modern news.

    Yup .. pretty well.

    It seems to be devolving into liberal safe space, the gun ban debate.

    The news is now reality TV. It's entertainment, not information
