I think it blatantly irresponsible and callous of The Arlignton Citizen Journal to list the personal information of those individuals who are experiencing such an unspeakable and horrific tragedy. Furthermore, I find it even more disturbing the way the article uses incomplete and limited information to portray the parents in an absolutely unfair way. The majority of the facts of the case were left out of this "If it bleeds, it leads" piece. The author of this piece of "news" should be ashamed. Comon human decency has completely left the practice of reporting news. This article is a sad testament to how far the media has fallen into a patheic state of sensationalism. It is no wonder media crediblilty and integrity are in question among the common everyday folk of this nation.
