Do journalists feel any guilt about the part they play in giving mass shooters that temporary ‘celebrity’ status?

It kind of pisses me off this was ignored. Why is everyone asking about bullet proof cars and ignoring the strict gun laws part??!?

Wait, Mexico has strict gun laws?

There is a whole radio series on this (which is how I know of it). I believe one was about old folks homes as well. These are airing on NPR this week, you should tune, sounds up your alley.

I can’t say I’m all that satisfied with this answer, though I work in the alcohol industry and that is also not doing society much good either. I feel the seeds of discontent partisan politics and the attention mass shooters get from NPR (and the media in general) aren’t necessary a good thing. Imo the media has an obligation to unite rather than divide, but everyone has taken a sensationalism ‘all about the ratings’ attitude. For some reason I have always had the impression journalists were in it for a higher purpose as opposed to it just being a job.
