I don't know about this one.
My first emotional response is yeah I can see where showing the video could be some form of encouragment.
However, logically do we really expect them to stop beheadings, torture, or violence in general because they are not getting their 15 minutes of
Was Foley killed and beheaded because they wanted attentions and if it wasn' for the internet he would still be alive? If so , aren't they still going
to get that attention by the MSM . Sure, they aren't going to show the footage but they are going to disclose the action that he was beheaded.
Should than the MSM media stop reporting on news on labeled terrorists or labeled criminals as it could give them their 15 minutes of fame?
Does watching the video really give them their 15 minutes of fame or 15 minutes of infamy. I would suggest the MSM editied version is more likely to
give them their 15 minutes of Fame while the actual video will give them 15 of infamy.
Tough call , eitheway they have won: 1. they get their 15 minutes and 2. we loose freedom of information.
I would not be surprised if liveleak got a call and some form of encouragement on this decision.
