A spokeswoman for the student government says the campus appreciates the reporting on the story, but that students are ready to move forward.
Liz Hart says “The best way to know how to do that is get the campus back to normal.”
She says students need to be able to get back to class and back into a “normal routine as much as possible” without any reminders of what a “difficult road” it will be.
In her words … “We already know it.”
The SGA doesn’t have any real power to make the journalists leave and I’m sure there’ll be a couple folks, perhaps wearing the blood-money peacock of NBC, who’ll want to brandish the First Amendment and whinge about how they’re actually helping by telling “the truth” about what happened.
I’m ready for it to happen. I can’t imagine every single network suddenly getting a case of conscience. I’m quite suer there are a few more reporters who haven’t gotten their fill of sifting a few more wounded souls through their media strainer to see what nuggets of emotion they can shine up and show off a bazillion times a day.
Remember, folks, NBC’s show of restraint in showing the video and pictures from the killer was that it wouldn’t consume more than 10 percent of their broadcast day. Think about that. Their definition of holding back is not showing the deranged bleats of a mass murderer on his way to slaughter for more than 2.4 hours every day.
You really think that someone who thinks that’s reasonable is going to listen to a couple students who are demanding a bit of privacy so they can get their lives a bit more torward normal?
