Unhappy Documentary regarding Virginia Tech

History Channel jumped on this way too damned quick. I was watching the channel two nights ago, & they had an hour-long show about the shootings @ Virginia Tech.

Now, from a historical point of view, it was somewhat interesting. But, on the other hand, the horrible events just happened 2 (?) weeks ago!!! Just a wee bit tacky on the History Channel's part, imnsho.

Needless to say, I didn't sleep well that night.



Anyone else see this as well?

Was there anything earth shattering in this documentary that the drive-by media neglected to mention in their biased anti-gun reporting?

I have no idea what was in the documentary. I didn't see it. My point is that within probably a years time there will probably be a movie made from this tragedy where people other than the victim and the victims families will profit from the suffering of those that suffered during this incident. It should not be allowed unless the profits go directly to the victims and the vitims families or to helping to prevent this kind of tragedy in the future.

I didn't see that but are you really surprized? It is more about ratings and who gets the most viewers and dollars vs. who may be offended by the shock factor of it all. The History Channell is not much different than all the other broadcasters and news hounds who are all about the almighty dollar. Those families of the victims must be horrified and justifiably so.

I see this a station jumping on something like this so quickly, which has already been all over the media, as thoughtless. Soon they will rate right up there with 'rag' magazines.
