After the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, CT, Kottke posted this video from a few years back of Charlie Brooker’s Newswipe dissecting how news media reports on mass killings like this.

Reminds me a bit about a section in the book It’s Not News, It’s Fark: How Mass Media Tries to Pass Off Crap As News (which you should read because it’s funny and informative).
