What happened in Boston is horrific. But I'm wondering why the media continues to paste the culprits faces all over ("Bombing suspect faces U.S. charges," April 23)?
They have been caught and the investigation will continue. Why provide the type of recognition that future bombers want? Domestic terrorism can be reduced if the media stops providing millions of dollars of free advertising to the extremists that want a stage for their cause.
How many other disgruntled people will look at the coverage and think, "that could be me on the front page?"
