SORT BY Relevancy
The killings yesterday we saw on TV from Roanoke Virginia – of two TV news journalists and the wounding of an economic analyst by a nutcase racist – hits many of us in the TV business.
Remember, I was a TV news reporter in a small TV market at one time. So this story hit home for me and many folks who were in the business who didn’t know these two journalists from Roanoke.
First, most TV stations – especially small market stations – are like a family atmosphere. You are mostly young and you learn to pull together to make a newscast get to air.
Second, doing a live shot – what they were doing when they were shot – needs a little clarity. Doing a live shot is fun but difficult.
As a reporter, you are out there with no script – or the semblance of a script in your head. As a result, you become extremely focused during the live shot -- to make sure what goes on camera looks interesting, informative, and comfortable for the audience.
If you're not in the business, this may sound a little strange but doing a live shot requires a massive amount of focus. And to make it look easy, it takes time and experience.
That intense focus on what is happening in the camera made both those reporters even more vulnerable.
Based on the video, it appears neither had any inkling of what was happening until after the shots were fired.
The other aspect of the shooting is the fact that the shooter videotaped it on his smart phone – and then posted it to social media. Doing this shooting, one of many each day in the US, no longer common but something to look at.
My fear is others will copycat this. The next time might not be a disgruntled employee but a sicko upset with news coverage.

NATHAN HALE HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS IN SEATTLE SAID NO TO COMMUNIST CORE. A BRAINWASHING DEVICE DESIGNED TO DESTROY AMERICAN FREEDOM. HOORAY FOR THESE YOUNG PATRIOTS.WE ARE CALLING FOR A COLLEGE SURVEY RATING BY THE STUDENTS. THE TOPIC IS HOW MANY HAMMERS AND SICLES DO YOU GIVE YOUR COMMUNIST REEDUCATION COLLEGE? LET'S FACE IT BRAINWASHING IS RAMPANT THROUGHOUT THE LAND. WHEN A PRE SCHOOL BOY IS GIVEN A GIRLS COLORING BOOK FOR CLASS WORK. HE COLORS THE DRESSES, THE BATHING SUITS AND THE SHOES TO ME THAT'S GENDER VERIFICATION.. WHEN HE GROWS UP HE CAN WEAR PRETTY RED HIGH HEELS LIKE THE PHILADELPHIA ROTC WERE FORCED TO WEAR ON A FIVE MILE HIKE FOR SICKO RIGHTS. WHEN YOU TURN ON YOUR TV SEEING A LONG SHOT OF A COUPLE KISSING AND THE CLOSE UP MAKES YOU PUKE BECAUSE IT IS TWO GUYS. THAT IS BRAINWASHING FOLLOWED BY CONDITIONING. TO THE POINT IT BECOMES OVERWHELMINGLY DISGUSTING, WHY CAN'T THAT MALE PRE SCHOOLER COLOR A KENTUCKY LONG RIFLE AND A COONSKIN CAP LIKE DAVY CROCKETT WORE? INSTEAD OF A SIX YEAR OLD GIRL LEARNING THE WORDS TO SLUTRAP MUSIC LIKE IT'S ALL ABOUT THE BASE. (SHE SINGS HER MOMMY SAYS MEN LIKE BIG BOOTY'S). WHEN IS THAT CHILD GOING TO MEET PLANNED SLAUGHTERHOOD. SOONER THAN WE REALIZE. THIS COUNTRY NEED MORE CROSSES AND MORE FLAGS. BEWARE THE COMMUNIST DEMOCRAT COMPLEX. DO NOT GET ONE. TELL OBAMA TO STOP SMUGGLING SLAVES INTO THE USA. IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHO THEY ARE AND THEY HAVE NO ID. THEY ARE DISPOSABLE SLAVES. AT LEAST 10 OF THE CHILDREN GET SIPHONED OFF AS SEX SLAVES. IF THEY DIE NO ONE MISSES THEM. NO ONE KNOWS WHO THEY ARE. SAVE THE KIDS.
