Comments: NBC and the VT Broadcast

Capus and the other heads at NBC debated long and hard over whether to show the video.

WTF was the debate? How high will our ratings go and how much should we charge advertisers??

Was it a debate over doing the morally correct thing versus the morally reprehensible? (We can see which side won that debate,...)

As for me,...F**k NBC!! I used to watch the Today Show over breakfast (my little TV in the kitchen doesn't have cable), but no more!

Any reason to not watch The Today Show is a good one, Trek.

The free market guy in me says that if the ratings were going to spike, that proves an interest in seeing it.

Were it a prurient look at the bodies or the murders, it would clearly be wrong. I just don't see what is clearly wrong with broadcasting this guy's "manifesto." I reject the assertion that it will encourage other mass murderers; I think that is a very singular deficiency.
