since going over to read his blog just after the Batman shootings happened
was that he had written a book called The Copycat Effect about how the media perpetuate these mass killings by going on about them in the media all the time, and all he ever seems to do on his site is exactly the same thing he is preaching against.
Seems hypocritical to me when all he seems to write about is mass killings and suicides and how to anticipate the next one...
From the book's Amazon page -
"A disturbed student shoots up his classroom -- and suddenly a wave of mass murder is sweeping through our nation's schools.
A young child is taken from her home -- and for months afterward child abductions are frantically reported on an almost daily basis.
A surfer is attacked by a shark -- and the public spends an entire summer fearing an onslaught of the deadly underwater predators.
Why do the terrible events we see in the media always seem to lead to more of the same?
Noted author and cultural behaviorist Loren Coleman explores how the media's over-saturated coverage of murders, suicides, and deadly tragedies makes an impact on our society.
This is The Copycat Effect -- the phenomenon through which violent events spawn violence of the same type."
It's like a person telling you how much they are in favour of eating vegetarian food because it goes great with a nice juicy steak.
To quote a one star review on his book at the Amazon site -
"Is this a joke?"
Does anybody else see the irony here?
