All the Media: TV, Newpapers, Internet, Magazines, radio, etc.

The deranged murderers such as the assassin in Newtown, CT, often seek to become infamous through their horrific actions. Please STOP mentioning the murderer's name and showing his photograph in the MEDIA! Focus your reporting instead on the victims and heroes of the tragedy. This will, hopefully, avoid other copycat massacres by deranged people seeking fame.

How this will help

There has been a pattern of senseless murders by madmen, and the theory is that they seek to become famous for their cruel exploits. Up until now, their wish has been fulfilled by the Media.
