Save lives: Don't Name the Killer

Should the media stop identifying mass killers?
Jon Friedman of Market Watch, a Dow Jones news service, had this provocative take on the Omaha shootings:

"I want the media to stop the practice of identifying crazed fame-seekers, such as the gunman who killed eight people Wednesday in an Omaha mall before taking his own life. Don't release their names or photos. By taking such a bold step, television, print and Web executives could help society and maybe even save lives."

Oh, really? Dick Weiss discusses this and other issues  with McGraw Milhaven on the McGraw Show on KTRS-550 AM.

Dick's media segment airs each Monday at 11:05 a.m.
