An excuse for the false reporting has been the fierce competition to feed the giant 24-hour media maw with fresh silage. Consumers get bored. They have short attention spans, want their morning coffee with a side of titillation.

The media could be useful in the effort to bring an end to the unspeakable violence that occurred in Newtown. It's a tall order and a huge responsibility. It will take guts and ethics. But the public has a responsibility, too, to keep in the media's faces and to settle for nothing less than truth.
