What is up with ATSNN? Why are you giving these hostage stories the extra attention the militants grave? This whole "be-heading" thing is about "shock value" and media like this plays right into their hands.

C'mon WAKE UP

Yea, it's kind of sick seeing this kind of extreme coverage of the hostage situations. It doesn't take an idiot to realize the whole reason for these beheadings is to get on global television and thus get in everybodies mind so that they are "terrified." We may as well just make a terrorist television station for dedicated coverage of all the terrorist attacks, so they can get all the attention they desire and can make the impact on society they strive for.

I don't think the media (FOX NEWS for instance) should censor this kind of news, just tone it down a bit.

When it is flashing, it means it is "Breaking News", these Alerts will stay up until Staff sees fit to take them off Alert. As for the "Media", they do not tell everything that is going on. We have broke News well before any "Mainstream" Media outlet had a clue. This is the beauty of ATSNN. We have members throughout the world, who at any given time can submit News Stories. We have over 11,000 "Reporters" so to speak, more than any News Source that I know of. I would suggest to start submitting News Stories to ATSNN if you think we are leaning in one direction, which I do not think the case is at all, there might be something we missed. We all are only human.....

Wait,....What?

If they tone it down, they're censoring it. What you said made no sense...

The difference between toning it down and censoring it is that it is still shown on the channel, just with less emphasis and time dedicated it. NOT THE TOTAL REMOVAL OF IT FROM THE NEWS. Is that distinction not clear enough for you? Like say if you go to the front page of foxnews.com right now, you might just see this in huge bold text:

"U.S. Military Confirms Marine Missing"

Well, this is precisely what the terrorists want. They get their freaking picture on the front of the most popular news network in America if not the world! Understand?!

Your point is well taken, I guess my reaction was one born of frustration not only with ATSNN but the whole US media and my post probably could have been better worded as such.
