Why is it that the "media" can't or won't recognize that their reporting about mass killers is exactly what they want?

Violence should no longer be newsworthy. The "media" — television, newspapers and the Internet — all create a place for these killers to get their notoriety. The amazing thing is the "media" do not get it!
