FROM THIS EPISODE

Though statistically miniscule, shootings have become a media clich-, surreal but stock images are emblazoned on the national consciousness, this time at a suburban San Diego high school. Journalists must walk a thin line between predictable voyeuristic reporting and in-depth coverage that could result in prevention of future tragedies. We discuss the school shootings and the media's obsession with them with a reporter who's covering the Santee shooting, an electronic-media spokeswoman, public policy researcher, and a man whose son was killed a decade ago in another school shooting. (Matt Miller guest hosts.)
