Should we not report it factually correct? (And many of you may not agree with me on this one)

I see that CNN’s Susan Candiotti is getting some criticism for correctly – factually – stating what the Tulsa shooters said.  It is disgusting what they said.  It was both racist and crude.

I know it offends many – but why should the media sugar coat the grotesque statements and make it look less than it is?   When you hear the actual words – as correctly reported by Candiotti – you get it…you get it big time.  If you hear a sugar coated description you might just let it pass by.  A warning that it is coming is a good idea but I don’t see why we in the media should cover for people who are nasty and crude and I don’t see why we should present the news different from what it is.

What do YOU think?
