Other media.

Up here in the vast wilds of Canada, the CBC made a decision not to show any of the media package the VA Tech shooter sent to NBC. CBC News Editor-in-Chief Tony Burman defends the decision, while NBC promises to cut down their coverage to roughly six minutes an hour. But that doesn't change the amount of coverage they gave the package yesterday, or the coverage every other news outlet gave it.

Everyone says they're dialing down the coverage now, but that fits nicely into the news cycle. Of course there wouldn't be as much coverage the day after, anywhere. No one should be patting themselves on the back.

Except maybe the CBC.
