Psychiatrist Michael Welner told Fox News this morning that he thinks CNN’s priorities, when it comes to mass shootings, are completely twisted. He said, “CNN’s gonna have to answer for how they demonize gun enthusiasts and how CNN actually contributes to mass shooting.”
Welner says that after the incident in Las Vegas, now deemed the deadliest shooting in U.S. history, CNN didn’t demonize the shooter. He says that by only hammering on gun control, and not highlighting how horrible the assailant was, the network encourages other shooters. He argues it is a way of complicity elevating the status of a killer, making the sick prestige something to murder for.
He continued: “There are no George Zimmerman copycats. There are no Donald Sterling copycats. There are no Jerry Sandusky copycats. Why? We’ve demonized them.” And, Welner says, CNN (and probably other mainstream media outlets) doesn’t demonize the shooter enough. They give him a lot of airtime, and blame the tool not the man. Is this indeed twisted?
The media was indeed so quick to talk about gun control. To say they were excitable would be an understatement.
