OMFG the media sucks!

 I'm sitting here watching CNN and this reporter said that when the name of the shooter was released there were a bunch of people standing outside an apartment complex, talking. When the name was announced the wife of the suspected shooter was outside and that was how she found out her husband was involved.

They said she was confused and visibly upset.

Seriously, the general or whatever he is at the base said an hour ago he WAS NOT going to release the name of the guy pending next of kin verification BUT the media dug and dug and figured it out and released it anyway.

What assholes.

Oh....what a shitty way for her to find out. That's outrageous!! If he was a soldier, they have his info. Someone could have easily contacted her first. Damnit!

 exactly.

about an hour or so ago the general or whatever the commander of the base is, said during the press conference he was not releasing the name of the shooter because next of kin had not been notified, formally.

what a bunch of assholes the media is to do that to her and their children.
