Covering an earlier shooting rampage in Germany, Charlie Brooker makes a bold assertion. To paraphrase, ask a forensic psychiatrist what encourages unstable people to become mass murderers:
We have yet another grim tragedy caused by a deeply disturbed man apparently looking to make some twisted statement. Even more disturbing is the possibility that the corporate media, in an ongoing desire for ever more lurid infotainment, is elevating mass murderers as antiheroes. We may get to see another example of this quiet glorification as the weeks of lurid coverage rolls on.
