Apparently it was necessary to officially quantify this information, unfortunate as that fact may be. Would be great if this leads toward minimizing sensationalism, but somehow I don't see that happening.

Suicide is contagious as well.

Yeah, if we could make 'social contagion' a household term, that'd be pretty cool. It might be hard what with all the stupid-tagions floating around though.

I will just lead to hiding nigger crime and highlighting the occasional white guy that snaps. That is all this will lead to.

It would be interesting to see if mass media has this effect on other things like teen pregnancy, drug usage, and the like.

Well shows like Teen Mom had an effect on teen pregnancy. I dated a girl who was desperate to get on that show. I don't know if you'd consider that mass media. If it's something that can make you famous, there is someone that's going to do it.

Had a similar scenario myself here in the UK, it's incredibly irresponsible on behalf of the media to encourage bad behaviour like they do.

I don't know if you'd consider that mass media

It's one show, but it, and people trying to get onto the show, got a lot of attention from mass media

When the TV show Degrassi started i thought about that. I'm sure it was well intended to help teens (mostly girls) be comfortable with their sexuality, but when teens are watching a show where teens are fucking everyone and their neighbor, not the teens not having rampant amounts of cassual sex feel like they are the odd ones out. Whether it be by being a prude or being unwanted.

We need more funding for that. We only got the 400 millions to determine if mass killings are more frequent.

CNN was the first to leak the Oregon shooter's name. Fucking hypocrites will do anything for clicks.

Not that the media will do anything. More shootings means more news to report which means more money.

The more they blame "Games" the larger than life they draw out "Gamergate" and other game related scandals. The further from this truth they try to lead us.
