Let Newtown residents grieve tragedy privately

I am appalled at the amount of media coverage the Newtown school shooting is receiving. Shame on the reporters for interviewing children, who will be forever scarred by this event. The parents who allowed their children to be exploited in this way have failed to keep them safe. The constant replaying of each sound bite desensitizes this horrible tragedy for the public. To the media – stop right now. Allow the residents of Newtown to grieve privately. Show some consideration for their pain. Our society’s “need to know now” does not have to be satisfied.
