“This is the most cowardly, selfish, arrogant news conduct out there today. What the fuck is ‘video and photos posted on the Internet’? How does that help readers? It’s as if I can go to www.internet.com, and there, on the first screen, will be the video and photos of the snowball fight and the maybe-gun-wielding cop. ‘Posted on the Internet’ would be acceptable if this were 1997.”
