Hmm, interesting question. In one way, I think that the media needs to hold out on reporting things until they know the facts, but at the same time people want to know details. Anyways, I think I will go with no. While I feel bad for the brother that they thought it was, that is something that happens very rarely. The sooner the name of the spree killer is announced the better the police might have at finding out information. Example- The spree killer may have said or acted in a certain way that a person close to him (friend, neighbor, co-worker, relative, etc) may be able to provide details to the police with. Sorry, I know you wanted a simple yes or no, but I can't do simple.

No (a small part of me says yes though). Reason for my no is because I believe in a free press. I just wish all of them were responsible with the information they glean. I think if they didn't report names there would be more vigilante type action by the public in a search to bring the un-named to justice. As it is with yesterday's tragedy, they were first reporting that the shooter's brother was responsible.
