Let’s have the debate

Posted: December 14, 2012 by doubleplusundead in Fun With Media

Should the media be permitted to be as callously intrusive as it is toward those effected by tragedies such as the shooting tragedy today?  I think it’s time to have a serious discussion about media control.

    The media should absolutely have the freedom to dig into and publish/televise/discuss ad nauseum and at length anything and everything that might make them more profitable. However, with that said, interested parties should absolutely have the freedom to pay $50.00 to the state, for a permit to harass and intimidate media personnel with the same vigor and intensity that they pursue their stories.

    I personally would lobby for a concealed carry permit to harass the media.

    I think there should be a mandatory seven day “cooling off” period between the shooting and the first media opinions.

    If it’s good enough for the Second Amend., it should work for the First, too.
