Random celebrities making statements, as if they matter. That same survivor who is obviously still in shock being interviewed left and right, and every time, she invents more facts, then realizes half way through, she's said things she can't possibly know (like ages of victims, etc). Increased security at movie theaters around the world as if this is some sort of organized terrorist attack. And, of course, the usual "oh, no, guns are evil, the guns made him do it" If anyone hasn't noticed - his apt is rigged to explode and he threw a gas canister before he fired a single shot - neither of those things involve firearms.
It's a tragic enough event as it is without sensationalizing it and exaggerating every aspect of it. Why can't it simply be acknowledged, with empathy for the victims and families, and disdain for the shooter, without trying to make it something it's not?

That's just another reason why I don't watch the news. I read my news off the net at my own discretion.
