Dear Mainstream Media

You know what's more influential than movies, video games, music, or books?


Maybe mainstream media wants to consider their serious hand in the glorification of terrorism and violence in America.

We just listened to, and then listened to again (and in the time we wrote this two more times) when they repeated it, an obvious deadly shootout of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, one of the young men responsible for the Boston Marathon bombings on Monday.

All day main stream media has covered the chase of a terrorist.

For weeks, months, years, they have been immortalizing bad and violent people by granting them countless hours of news coverage. From school shootings, to terrorists, to murders, they shove it all down the throat of an American who watches news in order to stay informed.

For anybody with any sort of mental issue; whether it be mental health problems, extreme anger, feeling disenfranchised and helpless, feeling unloved and invisible...; there is no better way to feel vindicated and satisfied, than being immortalized for brutal attacks and deaths with relentless news coverage.

Dear Mainstream Media...look in a mirror.
