Comment: The supply of demagogues

The supply of demagogues

The supply of demagogues multiplies when tragedy strikes in proportion to the ease at which public perception is vulnerable.

NBC exploits a tragedy during a broadcast of an NFL game, where they knew many would be watching, in their pursuit of demagoguery, to proclaim, without a shred of evidence, that had the assailant not the specified tool of murder, both would be alive. Maybe, maybe not. But is the avenue which they used the proper time to hypothecate on what is nothing but hypotheticals, in an attempt to spread, what seems to be, a preconceived viewpoint?
