So a fifteen-year-old was charged with the felony of "inducing panic" and the media isn't? Because it seems to me, for the past week, the media has actively attempted to induce a panic in the entire country.

The  media being used as a tool to manipulate public opinion and government policy?

No, it didn't.

i find it interesting that for the passed 30 years we stopped teaching our kids discipline and every nut screams child abuse when you put your kid in the corner for a time out, and all of a sudden the odd massacre every couple years turns into one every few weeks.

perhaps we should start back handing our children again, worked for my parents, worked for me. you figure out pretty quickly that testing some limits isnt a good idea, and we learned not to be mouthy assholes.

dont let one or two assholes who went to far with spoons, belts, and brushes ruin society and let the rappers take over, shiat, id have loved to see what would have happened to 50c and gaga 40-50 years ago. one would go to jail for admitting to selling crack, the other would end up in a straight jacket which is one level below what she already wears.

id rather put up with prudes then mouthy little bastards anyway.

Sensationalizing a real event and causing panic over a false event are different things. It's sad you two don't know the difference.


I would argue that Fox news does try and cause panic over false events.

You know what I've noticed? That in speaking to all the people I know in the general area that I live, that NOBODY is talking about guns and shootings and such despite this internet hype of gun control and school shootings.

It's like maybe you should get off the internet and talk to the people that live near you that might actually make a difference in your life.

Are they different, though? What's the difference between a fake event and a fake consequence of a real event? There can't be any operative difference. Maybe you can claim there's a "moral" one, for some definition of morality, but then you need to adjust for the difference in moral judgment between a teenager learning her way around her world and an organization of educated, experienced professionals cynically exploiting the public for their own gain.

Really? I had that lesson figured out in high school. Someone called in a bomb threat one day and the school canceled classes. I said it was a stupid idea because telling people about a bomb defeats the point of planting a bomb. Lo and behold, the next week there were TWO bomb threats to try and cancel classes.

For the past week? Have you just come out of a coma?


Fox News, Alex Jones, World Net Daily and Max Keiser have been "attempting to induce a panic" for years.

Wow, the Feb - April period seems volatile.


Ahh, Spring...when a young man's fancy turns to love... or just shooting a bunch of kids in a murderous plea for attention.
