NHPR was doing a piece on last year's Newtown massacre this morning. Just what I never wanted to hear. It certainly isn't news, everybody on earth heard about it. They interviewed a couple whose daughter had been killed. I didn't need this, I know all I want to know about the misery and suffering that comes from the loss of a child. So does any parent. I'm sure the interview didn't help the bereaved couple either.
So why do they run a piece that conveys no information and makes listeners feel sick to their stomachs?
Is it to drum up political support for gun control measures?
If so, shame on them.
