I got the point before you even made it, NBC

What could possibly be gleaned from actually seeing the videotaped message of Virginia Tech's insane killer that could not be conveyed by the way it's been described? Nothing. Nothing more than airing footage of beheadings, car crashes and the gory like. And if it conveys nothing new (save a sense of queasiness) then it's not really newsworthy, is it? It's bad enough that the dude's crazy gun-toting poses were splashed on the cover of every paper. Seeing them in motion adds nothing.

Granted, I'm sure there was just so much handwringing over the decision. SOOOO much.


For shame, NBC.
