Should We Not Report It Factually Correct? (And Many of You May Not Agree With Me on This One)

Posted: Updated:

I see that CNN's Susan Candiotti is getting some criticism for correctly -- factually -- stating what the Tulsa shooters said. It is disgusting what they said. It was both racist and crude.

I know it offends many, but why should the media sugarcoat the grotesque statements and make it look less than it is? When you hear the actual words, as correctly reported by Candiotti, you get it... you get it big time. If you hear a sugarcoated description you might just let it pass by. A warning that it is coming is a good idea but I don't see why we in the media should cover for people who are nasty and crude and I don't see why we should present the news different from what it is.

What do YOU think?
