1. CNN continues its descent into Fox News territory.

I hope Mr. Lanza sues CNN for defamation of character.

58. Not really. They showed his pic for a few minutes and it's the brother of the shooter....

it's not like they dragged his name through the mud for weeks or anything. At most they all showed his picture for a few minutes before correcting themselves. I doubt he'll get a dime.

Even if it does turn out that this Ryan Lanza is the shooter and a hacker/imposter is posting these updates, this kind of premature speculation and posting of FB profiles only fuels witch hunts could very well hurt innocent people.

I hope the updates aren't from a hacker and that this Ryan Lanza is innocent. This shooting is horrible enough without some twisted people having some sick lulz at others' expense. :/

After the Casey Anthony verdict, a woman in Oklahoma got attacked by some hotheaded moron simply for *looking* like her:

48. Thanks.

 

i've been lurking for a while but this convo made me register. This subject pisses me off to no end and i'm really fucking tired of the media and their careless behavior in naming people left and right in tragedies. You'd think after Richard Jewell (who sued them just like this Ryan Lanza will), the News corps would have more sense than to just name someone without research. Just like most corporations, the media cares about making money and a tragedy brings in more viewers and readers than anything else. They are fucking vampires and its time someone shined some sunlight on them.

51. CNN got it wrong.

I live in Hoboken and the police chief said that there was misinformation in the media's reports. Ryan Lanza is not the shooter, he was at work. The killer may have been his younger brother, who is being described as "developmentally disabled".

Ryan Lanza's FB friends have been getting a lot of voyeurs looking to "friend" them and even death threats. My stepsister had to deactivate her FB account because of all this.

Edited to add: Thank you for deleting the picture.
