Intrusive media

December 30, 2012 

JOHN MICHAUD, Richland

In the wake of the terrible tragedy in Newtown, Conn., in addition to the overwhelming loss and sorrow, I am struck by the crush of the media.

Think of what these poor people are dealing with. I'm disgusted by the initial reporting of unverified, untrue information and I'm disgusted by reporters thrusting microphones at any and every citizen with whom they make contact. I say leave these people alone to grieve in private.
