Media vultures won't leave Newtown funeral attendees alone

They don’t know when to stop. Twitchy told you about the media mob that descended on St. Rose of Lima church in Newtown, Conn. over the weekend. We told you about the residents erecting signs and begging journalists to leave them alone. And we told you about the grieving sister of slain teacher Vicki Soto, who asked her friends to hang up on media vultures.

Today, the frenzy continues with reporters swarming the funerals of two of the beautiful children murdered on Friday.

      Their clothes are not that good. They all look like they need a bath…smelly, too.

    That’s the MSM for you. Liberal media wants what IT wants and to hell with everybody else. Uncaring savages.

    • Larry Teague

      iT’S A SHAME THEY CAN’T REPORT REAL TRUE FACTUAL NEWS. Sensationalism bordering on morbidity…. Damn freaks!

      • http://www.facebook.com/learjett Robert Gough

        Larry is right… the Media does NOT report factual news anymore…they are as left wing as the President. Leave these poor people alone!

      Right does that Liberal media include Fox? They’ve been talking bout it non-stop for 4 days now.

    Don’t know who’s worse…The media or the Westboro Baptist Church lunatics….

      They both run a close race with each other.

    • $22639970

      I think the media is slightly worse. The Westboro bunch doesn’t get government assistance.

  • Maxwell

    Disrespectful… a funeral is an intimate, private ceremony. Media should not be there unless given permission.

    This Goes to show you what your Liberal Media cares about…

    NOTHING BUT THE RATINGS!

    >Let’s Sensationalize another senseless Murder in the name of creating rating points!<

    That way the next sociopath to come along will an even higher goal to shoot for.

    It's simple people,
    don't give them the ratings.
    When they start talking about it, turn it off.
    Write to your local broadcast station managers and tell them you choose not to watch any further broadcasts of their news that turns MURDER into into something spectacular.

    It was a tragedy, but I must say after the second day, I was tired of hearing about it.

    • Rob Portinga

      yes, but “the people” give them the ratings they’re looking for… so who’s really to blame?

    The media are no better than the Westboro Baptist Church people. Westboro gives Baptist a bad name and the media don’t give. The sister had it right, vultures!

  • MJ Pauls

    I wish I were in that area so I could show up with a large sign that says “MSM = Vultures” and use it to block the offenders’ cameras.

    common courtesy doesn’t exist in the press.

  • Patriot58

    A few years ago when my daughter died, the press was all over us. Most were respectful, but one had the gall to get mad when I wouldn’t give her an interview after a memorial vigil. I’m sure a few of them have feelings and sympathy, but many are just looking for their next great video clip or sound bite.

    • http://twitter.com/KahNayNay KahNayNay

      Sorry about your loss. If anyone knows how this intrusion feels, it is you. Thanks for that perspective.

    • Orpheus75

      yep, looking for that next pulitzer. To blazes with courtesy or peoples feelings.
      And sorry to hear of your loss.

    • Free2Ride

      So sorry for your loss!

    • jeanbean14

      I’m so sorry that your daughter died. So sorry.

  • Steven

    The media needs to leave those people along,

  • George Murrey

    Because of the nature of this news item, the MSM should be sensitive and give families as much space as possible. There is no need to ask questions, take pictures or even follow the family members and the coffin. Enough is enough, BACK OFF!

  • gbauti

    It appears that Media want to sensationalize it because they want to endorse “gun control.” In fact, if these teachers were armed the casualties might be less or nothing.

    • http://www.facebook.com/elaine.simons.90 Elaine Simons

      just watched nbc,,nightly news,,,they got the gun control going on. Watch out people,,,give them just a few weeks. Can not get Hillary to testify over 3 months later,,,but they can take our rights. If obama makes one more order,,,i will not vote again. I am a patriot,,republican,,but I won’t make that drive to polls if the Congress can not stand up. AGENDA 21.

    • http://www.facebook.com/learjett Robert Gough

      Thank yoou Gani, if just one teacher was armed and with “will” … just one person.

    • Gina R

      Just posted an article elsewhere where Bloomberg was saying another senator was ‘stupid’ for wishing the principal had had a gun. Best part was he then went and shot himself in the foot by saying “I don’t know what a gun would have done.”…

    Lord God, source and destiny of our lives,
    in Your loving providence You gave us Our children’s to grow in wisdom,
    age, and grace. Now You have called them to Yourself. We grieve over the loss them
    they are so young and struggle to understand Your purpose. Draw them to
    Yourself and give them full stature in Christ. May they stand with all the
    angels and saints, who know Your love and praise Your saving will. Amen.

    my idea of a tragedy is a bus full of journalists going over a cliff with 3 empty seats still available

  • Gallatin

    Why weren’t these cowards in Mexico to report on the carnage of obowmao’s and holder’s Fast and Furious guns?

    • http://www.facebook.com/learjett Robert Gough

      Yes! Why weren’t they there?

    • Mitchel Bart

      To dangerous for them to go out in the field to report on thise issues.

    Disgusting predators. Can’t they leave these poor people in peace? Reprehensible behavior. No respect for the grieving and heartbroken families.

    As emanuel would say!

    “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste,” then-incoming White House Chief of Staff Emanuel said in November 2008, while discussing his political strategy at a Wall Street Journal conference. “And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”
    Spewing his agenda!!!

  • DisgustedinTexas04

    Disgraceful what the media will do to push a story. Ghouls-all.

    God has a special place reserved for those that would use tragedy for political reasons. Obama’s fake tears and his lapdog media will not avoid answering for this indiscretion.

    Tear gas their ass. Ever time a group of them are together use tear gas or a very strong pepper spray. Just walk over and start spraying in name of the familys privacy.

  • Justfedup

    As other have said, in a few different ways – Would it be so bad if the local Fire Dept doused them in the name of public safety or local police setup a “safety” zone a mile around the funeral homes and cemeteries to give these people the space that brotherhood and good taste demands. It’s such a travesty – these people are working class GHOULS!

  • jbtweet

    Leave these families alone… let them grieve… quit showing it around the clock… IT JUST ISN’T HEALTHY!! The story will come out when accurate details are known! These people have been traumatized enough..they need a break as does the regular public!! Too much gloom and doom is NOT good!

    It is disgraceful that the media wont leave these people alone during the funerals. This is a personal time and I cannot understand the want or need to sensationalize this part of a horrific unimaginable tragedy of these people. I understand the news about what happened. But STAY AWAY from the funerals. give them their personal space and let them have peace on this matter. If anyone from the families want to share exerts from the funerals let them do it of their own accord through facebook or other methods.

    MSNBC, what do expect? Act like a bunch of animals. Anything for news. People need their ass whipped.

    All these goons do-besides harrasing those in mourning-is set the stage for the next attention-seeking nutcase to repeat this horror.

  • http://www.facebook.com/fred.rennie Fred Rennie

    Tell them once to leave you alone. Then call the police and file a complaint. If that does not work apply for a restraining order. You have to show these morons that you mean business.

  • http://www.facebook.com/fred.rennie Fred Rennie

    Or another way to get rid of MSNBC and their NBC affiliates is talk about God, Christ, or Christmas and watch them shutdown their cameras and run.
