Emotional Vampirism At Virginia Tech

Jonah Goldberg writes on the “emotional vampirism” at Virginia Tech:

“Because there isn’t enough new information to fill the infinite void allotted to these stories, the press quickly succumbs to a kind of emotional vampirism, feeding off the grief, fear, and anguish of victims clearly incapable of understanding their own feelings or of finding meaning in events that defy either understanding or meaning.”
