A group of Sikh men were among those came to Newtown to attend an interfaith service at Newtown High School on December 16, 2012 which was also attended by President Barack Obama. The service was held two days after gunman Ryan Lanza walked into Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. and opened fire killing 20 children and several adults on December 14, 2012.

 

When is the media going to be held responsible for their mistakes?

  • I wish they wouldn't mention his name at all. Too much attention to him is not good. Copycats crave attention.

    ^^ I agree! I wish they would limit the coverage completely. I am impressed with my local news. It is, of course, the top story, but they only talk about it for a couple of minutes and then move on to other news.

  • ugg...the brother should be able to sue them for that. but im sure he's far to busy & in pain to even notice. its one thing to get it wrong b/c the shooter had his ID, but when its been cleared up to keep using the wrong name is just lazy journalism...which seems to be all we get anymore.

    I did, but it's comment #61 of 62, so I'm sure they'll never see it.
