1. Although horrible tragedies like the one in Newtown, Connecticut...

1. Although horrible tragedies like the one in Newtown, Connecticut do need to be covered by the media, do you think media and news organizations focus too much on violence, bad news, and tragedy? Are the headlines, in your opinion, too often about horrible things in the world? Why or why not? What effect do you think this has on viewers, listeners, and readers of the news?


2. Given that there is so much bad news to report on, what might media and news outlets do to change their stance or coverage? Given the "if it bleeds, it leads" mentality, is any news organization likely to be the first to try? What do you think the fall-out would be if there was a shift?
