Hill excoriates media as shooting cause
December 2, 2015
San Luis Obispo County Supervisor Adam Hill believes blame for the San Bernardino massacre can be laid at the feet of “hate media.”
Writing on his Facebook page, “Team Adam Hill,” the District 3 supervisor even named four local media outlets as examples of his theory.
Hill’s Facebook post:
“Regarding the latest tragic shooting, I think we make a mistake by focusing only on guns instead of looking at the derangement of our culture. Every day poison is spread through public discourse by on-line blogs, AM radio, and certain cable news programs.
“These outlets take advantage of the community by lying to them, vilifying people, and encouraging sadistic, paranoid, and violent thinking. This is not being properly addressed.
“And it needs to be. Because this occurs locally too and our indifference is part of the problem.
“It’s understandable that people are afraid to challenge the purveyors of local hate, but do we have to wait until we experience something terrible before we do?”
In response to a reader’s comment, Hill added, “Here, we can refuse to allow ourselves to be manipulated by local hate media like KVEC, KPRL, KKJL, and CCN.”
