Victims' families urge less usage of Colo. gunman's name
NEW YORK – Some relatives of people killed in the Colorado theater shooting are urging television news outlets to resist using alleged killer James Holmes' name and image in their stories for fear it gives him the infamy they believe he craves.
Two families made that specific point to Anderson Cooper on CNN, who said Tuesday he has largely complied. Some news experts, while saying journalists must be attuned to these sensitivities, also warned against losing sight of the chief responsibility to inform the public.
John Larimer, a 2003 Crystal Lake South High School graduate and a U.S. Navy seaman stationed in Aurora, Colo., was one of the 12 people killed in the attack.
