NBC, ABC, and CBS agree.

There is a definitely a sense that who this guy was and his motive were swept under the carpet. This has never happened before with mass killings.

I asked a friend who deals with criminal behaviour what he thought the motive was and he thinks the shooters thinking was probably along the lines of. "Even guys who look like me, who as wealthy as I am, who aren't right wing voters can take a gun and shoot shit up. You never saw me coming, I bought guns for years and you never looked in my direction. I am the real enemy and I'm coming at you from within"

My friend thinks it's why he shot at the group he did. The irony being these are the kind of people who are pro NRA. The point being "how do you like the second amendment now"

Do you think the Fecal Footware skank was somehow involved?

I think I heard Tucker Carlson is investigating this and will be doing his show from Las Vegas some time soon. I know its Fox News but he's been pretty good on this topic.

Great minds think alike. This shooting was gone before the Texas Church one, which was gone even faster....

I assumed it was because he loathed either country music or Dan Bilzerian or both.

I've been shocked at how quickly this story has been dismissed. My partner and I were talking about it just yesterday and I have to admit I forgot about the Texas Church massacre. I think R4 has it partially right. He was angry as hell and acting out. I think he targeted those people because they were happy and having a good time while he was still a miserable motherfucker without real love or community.

Someone on DL is trying to plug fuckin Tucker Carlson. What is happening to this place.

Columbine isn’t even in the top 10 anymore.

The law of diminished returns are kicking in hard and the shooters and media aren’t getting the same bang for their buck anymore...

Damned if you do, damned if you don't. For decades people have asked the news media to stop making celebrities out of mass shooters. Don't spend endless airtime wondering about the motive, or airing the idiotic rants of the perpetrator. Now the biggest mass shooting in US history has occurred and the media isn't constantly airing the thoughts and explanations of a cold blooded killer and everyone is all, "Yoyre hiding something!"

That's a good point, R13.

The thing is everything we know about Paddock was immediately dived into the press right after the shooting, it is just didn't produce an easy motive.

That is what people have a problem with, they want everything tied up in a nice bow with an straightforward explanation of why he did it. And there isn't one, and I think people find that scary that people can just do something like this for no real reason.

I don't think the media diminished their coverage of mass shootings because they listened to the public, they diminished it because it's become routine. Big deal, another guy has shot up a school. That's the sad part.

And of course the last thing the right wing media agencies want to do is cross the NRA and remind people the majority of these guys are white and straight and look just like everyone's neighbour. It's much easier to pretend that all terrorists are coming from the outside rather than living right next door and the NRA are accountable because there the ones who keep fighting for rights of these guys to own guns.

It's because both recent shootings targeted Republicans. They wanted the story to be gone. It makes them look bad. When our people are murdered on a mass scale, we play it out for the world to see, over and over.

Biggest shooting in US history and forgotten already with no info.

Can you imagine how many of those dead people would have lived if only we knew the motive?

What did the Deplorabots on Twitter say was Paddock's motive? They're confident of motive within 30 seconds of reading about the shooting, because they always trust their guts instead of waiting for inconvenient facts. It takes one to know one.
