Other things the media is doing wrong in regards to this mass shooting other than differences in coverage length:

- Naming the shooter

- Plastering his manifesto everywhere

- describing the shooter in a neutral way, such as a “man wearing body armor and tactical gear”

- plastering the body count everywhere

This is EXACTLY what motivates these sickos to act. The media is perfectly playing into his hand, dancing the dance he wanted them to do

I can’t fault them for neutral coverage, but how I would cover the story would be like this:

“Boy coward targets vulnerable unsuspecting people in attack”

That’s it, no body count, no describing the scene like an action movie, no name of the shooter, and calling him a coward/insulting him

Do this for every mass shooting

What Main Stream Media?

He live streamed it himself.

He even referred to himself as a White Supremacists.

I mean all he had to do was come out and say that he wishes he was with the proud boys when they stormed the capital and got a lynching like wanted.

But yeah let’s all be neutral about this.

All media should cover mass shootings like this if I had my way

Clinical psychologists have commented that naming mass shooters, describing the scene like itís an action movie, putting the body count out there, and saturating media with the manifesto is what inspires future copycats

Keep the story vague, insult the shooter, donít name them, donít post manifesto. People can find that if they dig, do not make these people infamous, no matter what their manifesto says (any motivation for mass killing)

We have crazy people dude, and the media did indeed bury the story about the black racist shooting up a subway in a primarily Asian part of NYC. White supremacist lone wolf shooters are obviously bad, but the media should not be functioning as a gatekeeper for stories it doesnít like. Thatís why we have so many people who are conspiratorial. Everyone is lying all the time if it suits their political purpose. That is quite obviously wrong and bad for democracy.

All of that in no way condones or minimizes what this shit head did in Buffalo. Heís a piece of garbage.

I donít know anything about the psychology behind this but it seems reasonable to me that giving these guys a platform incentivizes the next one
