Welcome to read I MTV's Danny Levy in for Greg Gutfeld let's go to -- salute for a pregame report Thomas coming up on tonight's show -- sandy.
Coming up on tonight's show the mass shooting in Newtown Connecticut has renewed debates about the mentally ill gun control and entertainment culture our panel will discuss.
ESPN analyst rob Parker has been suspended until further notice for describing Redskins QB Robert Griffin the third by using a term.
I've never heard -- before but I'm sure it's inappropriate.
And the Florida Supreme Court has finally ruled on whether blaring loud music from the back of your car is a protected form of expression.
It is Andy thanks a lot Tom let's welcome our guests.
I'm getting my game Mac columnist and author -- -- -- Comedian Jim Norton his latest comedy CD came out last week it's called no -- be for you.
Bill Schulz started.
And sitting right next week.
Rock -- I'm a former US ambassador to the UN and Fox News contributor.
I'm gonna get right to the top story tonight he -- detention until we didn't.
-- -- it was an awkward loner who pressed himself against the wall and others approached in the hallway.
Now -- shattered town and devastated nation is trying to understand why he would kill his mother and then -- 26 children and adults.
He had problems problems that went beyond an adult -- lack of social skills school officials assigned him a permanent psychologist as a ninth grader.
And -- into the school security chief in middle school.
He was mentally -- clearly and there -- reports he was diagnosed with Asperger's -- milder form of autism and not something that would need to his horrific actions.
But we really don't know everything.
However this tragedy has put the spotlight on mental health as one forensic psychologist told USA today.
If we're gonna focus on prevention that we can't think about the gunman in a parking lot and -- to do with them we have to get involved a lot earlier.
Hi Jim it's so this guy was an awkward loner painfully quiet so are a lot of teenagers how do you differentiate.
I mean I think you just know we're talking be polite but I love and elegantly he can't judge a book by its cover -- coming to your school shooter he looks exactly.
Like I think -- -- -- look feel that same.
Stupid vacant look committed people give you the creeps we talked that is socially -- polite to acknowledge that you have -- right someone gives you the creeps.
It's probably because they're creeping.
And I don't care why he did it I'm -- of motive -- he's a psychopath.
That's why he did it we spent much time why did the -- kill because he's just he's he's.
He's insane if you're never gonna find a reason that makes sense when it makes it acceptable right when it makes it less random so I'm just hired.
Obsessing on why the mentally ill do what they do.
Well okay -- -- it's a good point but it psychologists do say the perpetrators of these of mass murders on Virginia Tech that for example other things.
All did suffer from serious mental issues -- as Jim was saying.
And can we focus more attention on these people and try to -- had had the stuff off at the past.
I think we need to figure out what's going on and why these mental health issues are going -- -- it's the job of a psychologist to figure out if these people pose a real threat if they're doing -- -- their jobs they will be able to distinguish between the people who are just loners and a little odd.
Verses the people who are dangerous another question I have is.
What was -- on any medications because a lot of these medications that are used to treat depression.
Anxiety ADD have very serious side effects that could potentially make you -- outbursts make you.
-- -- of your personality come -- and -- you never knew existed and I've -- -- happened with kids in schools where their whole personality changes as a result of medication I'm not saying that's the sole cause.
But it could definitely be a contributing factor you -- but of course we don't.
At this juncture we don't know we don't know he's right on I'm saying that's one of the questions that the reporter should be asking shipping on any -- was he meeting with a psychologist how often was he attending all want our rights.
-- ambassadors to some states have these are these they're called assisted outpatient treatment laws that allow judges to order people with a serious mental illness to have to go into treatment.
But that's the thing is -- these programs only apply to people that have a history of violence or have been incarcerated or hospitalized.
So we don't even know if that would've helped here.
Is there anything you can just what do you think well I think we need to have a discussion about the protection that's been put around mental illness in in many respects for good reasons it's it's not the person's fault it if they suffer from.
Some emotional disturbances it is something it is a disease.
But just because you don't want a statement ties them for something that's beyond their control doesn't mean that you should you should have been hands off attitude this is not like having.
That this is potentially much more serious and I think that the notion that that because mental illness is still something we're trying to understand.
You have to leave people alone until the tragedy happens as just the wrong way to look at -- -- -- -- as you can help people without -- -- -- Right well I think the earlier that you have a serious conversation about this potential and consider.
Involuntary commitments -- serious problem and I think -- libertarians.
Understandably worried about it.
But that mass murders worst problem -- Bill -- that did the school officials.
Where it -- it went to school they they haven't joined this tech club thing.
To help and try to be more social and apparently didn't help.
Some people are asking you know -- -- -- should the school done more -- the school do more or is this not what ultimately is not the school's responsibility.
On the schools whose.
Possibility and -- socially can be an attack clubs but I mean he also got to wonder.
How much is too much as far as discovered is concerned because delusion in no criticism are in the -- -- ballpark.
And -- these kids it is need to push I was -- tabloid.
This weekend in New York tabloid.
Twenty pages of coverage devoted this and sports Texas -- and after awhile.
He is good and if so why got to wonder how much is too much as far as as covered his guns and because all these kids got delusions of printer right.
Well -- rape cases.
All media Allen's usually agree -- never mention the name of the victim.
Maybe -- like that can be applied to the actual perpetrators when it comes to something like this because these kids are on the edge anyway.
And all it takes a little push and a lot of times they see a -- or someone who did something that maybe it's crossed their mind.
And you mention his name one after another after another.
And their mind this is not a bad way to get your name out there in their mind this is like wow -- if if this guy's gonna go this way why can't I.
I think there and have -- of the five that notoriety that I feel I deserve.
There's some of these I don't know I don't know what the answers but it's a lot I think.
There's a -- to this you know one reason the media don't broadcast terrorists' demands or read terrorist -- -- -- they don't wanna encourage other terrorist threat and and ended in the peculiar way I think we -- the minds of some of these people work.
They see this is a way to get publicity if you're alone or if you don't think anybody that pays any attention Kerry cares about true -- and yet you see what happens with this obsessive coverage I think I think it's over the top for many reasons.
But I think it's potential impact on people who could go over the edge is something that the media need to have a serious conversation that they're blaming other people this really is something the media can affect itself.
Jim I know you have strong feelings on as we talk about in the green room and it you know you've pretty much agree with them let me bring this up no we don't.
The media covers.
Saddam Hussein in the media cover as you know.
We do cover people like that because it's newsworthy.
So where do you how do you say well you shouldn't cover this.
When it's clearly newsworthy.
Well Saddam Hussein is you not -- inspire.
Other people to become a dictator by covering.
Saddam Hussein and you have to cover -- it is legitimate news and we do want to know what's going on.
But there there becomes a point where it becomes tabloid and disgusting and the media knows where that line is.
Psychologist and a talent for years how to cover these stories they they're not used to it they cover every time this happened we -- the same boring.
-- discussions is it mental illness Rivet guns and the media never has the discussion what did we do to contribute it.
Didn't win that windy shooting happening a -- you know more coming because they're giving these little worm is exactly what they want now delayed and go out a blaze of glory.
And the press knows they're doing it and they don't care -- -- -- plain ignorance like -- just doing our jobs they absolutely no.
And they just somehow admonished themselves of any guilt.
Because that they feel like they they can hide behind just doing their job disgusting.
All right I did I wanted to talk about guns in a minute but -- -- what I'm just I'm leaving it up now for one reason understands mental health thing for a second.
I know little about about guns.
I saw a lot of just flat out wrong information being passed around over the weekend on Twitter on news reports.
Stuff about automatic weapons which were involved in this.
People -- not understanding what a semi automatic weapon is apparently.
So to get back to mental health is most of the people who are talking about that including us right here aren't experts.
We probably don't know what the hell we're talking about right.
When it comes to mental health -- and you need mental health experts to be up there talking and I and so fox -- credit I think they did have a lot of doctors on.
That we're discussing the implications that in fact that this could have for kids who survived.
How this situation should be dealt with you know day by day how it should be explained to your children if they weren't involved.
What's going on what could possibly we -- got Krauthammer on who was talking about getting into the mind he was the first person I think I heard who said.
We need to get into the minds of these people and figure out what's going on we need to address the mental health issue he was the first person to call attention to that.
So yeah I think so -- to your question before about schools also how much they can do.
We have to remember that this thing in many cases ultimately resides with parents and -- -- the people -- with these kids 24/7.
Most of the people that that are -- that -- -- -- position where they can make these kinds of decisions about what kind of help.
Their kids get at a certain point the school does legally need to step back and say this.
Is the job of parents all right.
I wanna I wanna guns.
-- -- -- Sunday night's vigil President Obama hinted he would enter the debate over gun control in the weeks to come.
No single all.
-- set of walls.
The evil from the world or prevent every senseless act of violence in our society.
But that can't be an excuse for inaction.
Surely we can do better than us.
In the coming weeks -- use whatever power.
This office hold string gauge my fellow citizens from law enforcement.
To mental health professionals to parents and educators.
In an effort aimed at preventing more tragedies like this.
So that on Monday white house Press Secretary Jay Carney said the issue will require a quote comprehensive solution -- quote involving gun control and other measures.
And democratic senator Dianne Feinstein has said she will introduce a de facto renewal of the assault weapons ban that expired in 2004.
Meanwhile Republican congressman -- -- -- -- noted on FOX News Sunday that stricter gun control does not necessarily mean that crime rates go down.
Washington DC around us ought to be the safest place in American it's not.
Chicago a lot of besides it's not because they're gun laws don't work.
-- ambassador on Monday senator Joseph -- Republican who is an avid hunter and a -- I'm -- right right Democrat Bart who's an avid hunter and NRA member.
He's a gun control legislation should be can side that needs to be part of the discussion have we sort of are we seeing the -- shifts in the gun control debate in the tone at least.
Well I think it's too early to tell I think all of these issues need to date be debated.
But but many of the people who are now saying see this proves she needs stronger gun control laws held that position before the new -- massacre and and for various reasons -- had nothing to do with what happened there.
The real question is if you change the existing gun control laws.
Who -- -- new camp would have stopped a roar would have stopped and the answer in most cases seems to me is now and I think that ties and in part to the point you made that people not really understanding the nature of some of these weapons they -- something semiautomatic.
That sounds sort of almost like automatic.
-- been fired a weapon on automatic and over forty year and I was on active duty.
Most of the people who talk about it had never done it but if you've ever done it once you've -- you know what it means.
And I think also it goes this question defense.
You know it you can't lock up all the emotionally disturbed people you can't get rid of all the guns so you've always gonna have the potential what steps to protect the schools.
Are you taking to declare them gun free zones mean teachers don't have guns there no security just opens them up to this kind of attack.
Yeah I just I -- that I was -- quote senator -- again he said.
I don't know anybody in the sporting or hunting arena that goes out and assault rifle I don't know anybody who needs thirty rounds in a clip to go hunting.
The first might find it odd that an avid hunter would confuse a -- and a magazine but that's it separate issue.
Do you agree with him on the other point.
No I I think you know you also need to keep in mind that Adam -- have tried to have by a legal gun and was denied he refused a background check he refused.
Two have exited without the waiting period so -- didn't get a legal gun he stole someone else's gun.
The gun control law that was in place that prevented him from getting a legal -- Worked what didn't work was the fact that he -- somebody else has done that there's nothing you can really do about that the crazy person is gonna steal someone else's -- odds on that they're gonna get it.
So and also the school.
-- gun free zone -- all of these places the malls the movie theaters that these people often go to our gun free zones for a reason because they know people won't be on to protect themselves agree I just wondered of one point you could argue that if -- mother hadn't been allowed to purchase a gun he would have been able to steal it from.
You could argue that happen and that's like saying that.
Every person who -- a law buying abiding citizen has to be punished and can't protect themselves.
Because someone else who isn't a law abiding citizen may decide to steal their stuff but that shot is what I -- yeah well -- you know should his mother have been more careful knowing that she had someone in the house full -- questions that we don't know we don't know what kind of safety precautions that -- -- keep those guns out of his hand we don't know what was going on in terms of the family dynamic I would argue that yes if you have.
A child who has mental issues that you you who you think -- teetering on the edge and you have guns and -- it's your responsibility.
To make sure those guns are protected absolute.
-- now Jim what about the idea that school officials should be on some people are going around saying this now.
Is this overreacting to that that the fact is schools are among the very safest places for kids.
Indicated he -- the school officials it's one of them is gonna snap.
That we -- shouldn't be that we get on the cafeteria ladies but and one -- -- is gonna set you it doesn't matter because whoever has it if one of that group snaps.
Then people go oh my god they should.
You think nothing.
In this doesn't change anybody's opinion with something like this happened.
People who are very very foregone it strengthens their opinion about Darren might not to stop the anti -- anti gun -- -- that's what happened with constantly kept.
It just becomes a talking point -- people used to strengthen -- side of the argument doesn't that changes -- what is.
Think in the case -- the school attacked the principal on some of the other teachers very courageously.
Went toward the gunmen in an effort to protect the children.
And died as a result of there.
Courage now had they had weapons with the result of been different it couldn't it it's hard to imagine it could have been worse than 26 year olds being killed.
So I think this possibility with training with supervision right I think wouldn't -- -- possibly deter people like the end and you can't put just -- what are we start doing -- -- requiring that principals and teachers get.
Gun safety during I don't know but I think this ought to be part of the debate that the notion of the gun free zones.
Does it you know maybe you don't want your students to have guns but that doesn't mean you don't want some system a security guard for example to protect the students.
This set -- Committed suicide when he knew the police had a ride why they were the people with the guns and that's what he feared.
To become quite happy -- the regular military guy that I would driveways are like an air Marshal kind of system we.
Somebody there was used to have a good teaching -- -- -- and being very well intentioned.
Did being trained -- a -- is one thing but running into when there's a maniac firing right absolutely different add value cannot agree more -- the bill I saw a quote.
I'm not -- on who is from that said that this is gonna be equivalent for schools at 9/11 was for airports is that what we want we want the equivalent of the TSA.
In schools what we're gonna do at this point I mean I can't speak specifically what the schools do and the one -- at the top of the list when it came to save schools I mean had doors were all the locked now they're also as a security provisions that kind of -- -- way and I mean this point it's gonna happen it's gonna happen even if teachers are caring.
But I I don't know the thing that and then I've seen only a little bit out here but I certainly see without a tragedies like this is -- I don't understand.
When people start to quitting gun control with banning guns and -- seems to be the parallel that I see me.
And it's just one is completely different than the other.
And you find -- a lot of gun owners are completely -- common sense movements that involve gun control but it seems argument stops right when you mention the words because that immediately quake and then second -- implemented.
But out Frank Luntz recently did a poll no allow a liberal he and he -- gun owners not Harry NRA gun owners and NRA gun owners of -- if there should be a required criminal background check on gun owners and gunshot employs 87%.
I got -- said yes 74% enough and I governors say yes.
I concealed carry permit cheerleaders to -- be individuals and completed safety training course and 21 and over 84 non NRA said yes.
74% and NRA gun owners say yes there's a consensus here lol what you don't hear is these people -- you hear a represented -- of the NRA.
And far right political strategist whenever that means.
-- -- -- Doing their agenda because the fact of the matter is OK there's less there's less people buying guns now there's more people -- a lot of guns like gun ownership in households across America has gone down big time OK the let me -- got to keep them.
Let me take the other side of this and this is one of the things that I saw over the weekend and I saw on TV on Twitter whatever.
All the people saying which we need to have a conversation on gun control time for conversation on gun control.
My feeling is Wyoming let's have a conversation.
But most of these people don't want a conversation because -- conversation involves listening to people who disagree with you.
And ideally starting from the premise that both sides are coming from position of good faith.
The majority of the people that are calling for it you know -- saying oh it's time for competition -- control they don't want -- conversation they just want gun control.
They want a monologue they wanted to adults talk about about what they kneeled at the bottom line is the -- if you look around the country to discuss the states the cities the places that have the strictest gun control laws often have.
The highest crime levels that then that's -- -- -- it's a deterrent for criminals if you have.
A regular Americans who are law abiding citizens like an arm themselves I -- think about it if you have security not protecting you all -- and I through this question out to piers Morgan.
Follower or one of the media had folks that -- they're talking gun control but would you want them on ice certainly would if I was out there -- I was a high profile figure I would want my security team on.
Why -- regular Americans not entitled to that -- it makes no sense to me.
I've got to move on but I just watching what they -- my a big thing going on here is everyone says in the wake of this we gotta we gotta passively got to do some -- something.
I am opposed to.
Calling for legislation passing legislation in the heat of the moment when emotions are high to me.
That's -- you end up with things like the Patriot Act which end up having a lot of unintended consequences or intended consequences that people didn't.
Quite realize when they were voting for it.
Have a conversation absolutely but it.
We don't need to pass anything in the next couple days or anything like that -- coming up.
A different story something about football perhaps -- what you read I an -- -- different.
So is it Corning if RG three points the GOP.
Well ESPN a sports network has suspended the analyst rob Parker for calling Robert Griffin the third corn ball brother following the -- -- quarterback's request that he not be judged on the basis of race here's Parker last Thursday.
My question would.
-- -- -- -- -- You called won't.
Not really OK black -- kind of go -- what he's not really doubt will cause he's not -- Hamas.
We all know him.
Information at all -- -- trying to dig people rich.
And here's Stephen A Smith summing up this segment nicely.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- the war Christmas gets more -- more violent.
-- Jim I'm guessing that regardless what you think about Parker's comments you don't think you should have been suspended.
I don't know I'm caught on the front.
Because -- I I typically hate seeing people.
Suspended for expressing themselves.
But it was a white commentators saying that he would actually be suspended and this guy just in the first of all his head is.
-- at -- and and the fact that god is nothing more boring than watching a guy.
Question another -- racial allegiance -- qualifications.
And in the late 1970s.
Thinking what is he not run or not that he's married a hunky stupid okay problem -- -- pledge to look at Jefferson's yet that's exactly what it's like god I don't wanna stick got fired on this fight I think I hope that.
He's fired for something else could pick -- So ambassador that this all stems from -- decree basically saying he was saying look I don't wanna be defined as an African American quarterback.
Doesn't that is not common sense would you rather be noted a great African American quarterback or great quarterback.
Well it this is a critical point where our society has absolutely reversed where we started out in civil rights movement it was Martin Luther King.
Who said I look forward today when people -- to the day when people are judged by the content of their character and not the color of their skin they obviously didn't get them amoled ESPN and and unfortunately it's true across the board that's how we campaign.
In politics at least that's how the Obama campaign work you target ethnic groups.
Religions -- on the basis of gender now talk about issues and I think it's demeaning I think people are multi dimensional.
And and when you -- and pigeon -- somebody as the black guy for the woman.
-- you're going in the wrong direction.
Staff so -- I RG three has a great arm amazing legs what seems to be really good head on his shoulders all of which as a giants fan completely terrifies me.
But my guess is he'll be remembered long after rob Parker is forgotten.
-- that I will be terribly is already old news I don't know why we're talking about him but you know -- -- something stupid Parker and me and you knew I have to be held accountable for what you say -- -- -- -- I think Rush Limbaugh said something that had racial undertones years ago on ESPN and he was forced to resign so I think ESP it was in a tough situation.
You're gonna hold people accountable for what they said hey you need to sort of do it across the board has some consistency that might have been their struggle -- the last -- you quick.
What did Rush Limbaugh offended all black people this -- -- suspended corn ball ones who -- and that was the problem right there but also I will the funny part was rob Parker gave him props to the street -- that was -- I really -- he's trying to look like a surfer.
So I don't think that's I read an off night I think -- -- -- in -- -- youth group as these well that's a fact.
Security act kind Saudi have a comment on the -- email us -- threat I have foxnews.com.
And -- video of your animal doing something.
Go to foxnews.com slash red -- and click on submit a video we might use it still to come halftime report from -- Tonight's have to reported sponsored by sled dogs those dogs trained to pull sleds especially as part of a -- -- sled dogs.
-- -- back let's find out if we got anything wrong so far that we go to Tom salute you Tom hi Andy -- it.
Good good I am confident yes you are there and I -- night.
You know it's okay.
So I got that right yes -- -- OK.
The amount mental health discussion at the beginning let's go to Jim Jim Norton you said you don't care to ask.
And you kind of you gave little voice is it -- -- killer -- liking you this is what you've been hearing all the time -- Well why did the killing -- you're sick of hearing people say why did the killer -- bots.
If the answer to that leads to.
Some kind of intervention.
Could that -- you know could that be valuable.
Sure but it tends to lead to more media coverage it becomes stage three.
Of them prostituting his story is this state interest -- why why did the -- killer and -- given the Monica why did the Joker kill him and I never concerned.
With the motives of a sociopath.
Because it's never gonna make sense.
-- -- not so crazy they don't know what they're doing because he planned it and he shot himself when the cops are coming.
So he knew the consequences.
You never gonna find an answer which which makes it all seem less random and thereby less frightening so I'm not interest at all now that's a that's a good example because it was this.
-- -- a team movie theater shooter who was dressed up.
I mean he was dressed up like a super villain -- -- not yet.
But no I think we're Gabby Giffords -- -- -- is ever going to be as a shooting where we go all okay well there's a reason I think hopper had never we're never gonna fight when the makes cents.
-- a diet you said it's the job of a -- this is you know you respond to Jimmy said but this is the job of psychologist to figure out what makes these people tick.
The question is.
If we if if we do fines.
A way to isolate these people.
Isn't the issue really less about psychology and more about the with the willingness to.
To force these people into treatment which we don't seem to barely able to -- well -- it.
It fixes and minor -- you have to deal with their parents and you have to try to work with and I think the idea as to figure out if these people are dangerous before they become dangerous and to monitor and like I that if Iran medications -- they're under treatment and to make sure that.
If these are young people who are living with parents or who how close relatives.
That there's someone involved in the situation was aware of the severity of it and monitoring it because a lot of this goes on monitored.
And then all of a sudden it's too late and we look at the new stories and we see.
Overall these warning signs why didn't anyone do anything about it well maybe not enough people who were responsible.
Knew what was going -- I've got a question for you just because I know you were eight.
You're a teacher and I writes I was a teacher a dean an advisory out OK see you were an all these now would you do one of these by they talk about.
Farming principles I mean do you know many people in administration who are willing to walk around armed it doesn't seem like -- that's the culture.
That kind of accept this kind of character.
It depends where it is I mean in certain in Texas may be in New York City probably not I mean I I'm a little bit concerned about that just because I know what difficult.
Schools look like where there are are very tough kids I know there's a lot of tension classrooms all the time.
I would be a little bit worried about.
You know it teacher always being aware where his or her weapon was no student doing something they shouldn't do to try to snatch it.
All of that worries me but I do support security at schools and if you had a trained professional.
Who was visible to the public outside you know in now and it was known as a ground that was protected by someone who was -- I think that could make a world of difference.
Well certainly people are come from within in other countries when I travel sometimes -- guys with machine guns outside of hotels.
Yeah and guess what the people in the hotel well protected no -- -- -- Nevada.
Well yeah -- that was the time felt safe was in my hotel.
How much time I needed to they had indeed job here tonight I think what we're preparing to -- -- how come no teacher we ever have looked like that.
I'm not a lot Saturday mail did you that would address when I look -- -- because -- had to die and that was it I.
-- -- in the front office yeah yeah exactly you -- -- were clearly again.
I did a lot of troubles announcement.
Ambassador -- you brought up a good example.
When you said we don't broadcast terrorist demands we were talking about the media exactly.
We don't read you know the ransom -- -- glorifies.
The terrorists or the criminals they you know -- hostage takers whatever.
There was another good example.
I think it was bill who said rape cases they don't mention the name of the the victim.
Did the media is constantly self senate censoring themselves but for some reason they think in terms.
In these cases of -- -- is shootings that they can't censor themselves but they do it all the time you bills example of the rate.
My example when minor kills their -- something I thirteen year old -- put his name on the news.
-- and Norton you gave me a good example in the green room -- it was a perfect example when some fan runs out onto the field.
This these sports.
Coverage they don't follow him on the field.
They put your camera somewhere after that because I was feeling left out I wanted to.
And after -- that I did it well actually I mean it seems like -- frivolous example but it's a perfect example.
In many cases all kinds of media sensors themselves why not Andy.
In any case like that.
-- because I'm I'm not I'm still not sure what exactly what you want no coverage of this event because we covered terrorists actually cover up error in another -- -- that real about don't ask I mean look look at what we've seen since Friday it's been wall to wall coverage an hour after hour after hour and I think it's that excessive coverage.
That could have an effect on other emotionally disturbed people in -- state and then see this is what you can get four days of being the center of the -- -- of the entire United States that's standalone -- going to it has -- if you stop.
Coverage in the first four days then you're gonna get yelled at from people saying why are you covering acts while this is -- still don't -- this is going on.
Well I think maybe if we if if there was the principle throughout the media that people understood because we understand when we hear that there was a rape victim and they don't announce her name we all understand why because we're we're all familiar with this practice.
I can remember.
Dealing clean -- I remember still remember this guy's name why -- I remembered Dylan Klebold Sunni.
I've remember that did that and that is.
Being particularly excessive and we may be approaching it and in this case but I don't but also -- this is so what are you.
How do you define the media is the media Fox News and other news networks is.
Because he's the -- not Twitter is the media not the Internet because you're -- to still get coverage all over the place so.
You're saying news network's news organizations should not cover this but.
It's it's still going to be covered his name's going to be out there are so it's going to be circulating all over the -- -- -- -- It's -- -- cause I I think you know I guess me personally I'm opposed to looking at this guy's face.
You know projected on a big screen and seeing his name is -- as you mentioned Twitter because if you're looking at the Twitter hash tags.
The kind of things that are trending on Twitter I haven't seen this guy's name trending on Twitter what I see is.
I you know I remember new town and -- sandy hook things like that so it's kind of interest -- Maybe -- could ask one other question of get a guy this is kind of from my own purposes.
The people if we're giving all sorts of advice about how to talk to your children about this.
And I was hoping that my kids weren't talking about this in school I didn't bring it up of them over the weekend I don't know if sitting down and talking to little kids but this I just turn the news off.
Do you think they should be talking about it -- first or second grade classroom.
Well yeah I don't know in the first -- second grade classroom but the problem is that kids will ask questions that TVs are on in households all day long and kids are coming home from school they're doing their homework at the kitchen table and mom or dad is that they are watching this.
So they're gonna ask questions that you have to be prepared to do -- bit.
And if kids become frightened -- some kids become more -- You don't give them real answers.
They're very receptive to that they they're very receptive to truth so I think you have to address if your kids have questions.
I wouldn't go out of my way to bring it up if your kids have been somewhat untouched by this.
But if they do have questions that you should be prepared to have some answers.
All right well we spent a lot of time talking about the shooting I guess we can go to just the last story.
I just looked at the this is on the the ESPN analysts.
I looked at the I never heard this term corn ball brother did you any.
Has anyone heard this torture before -- brother I've heard it before this story yet -- I never did what I let let I you're not you're not out on the streets like I am time yeah.
You know anywhere those gloves and at the top of the fingers guy.
And -- well listen I used to form the term -- my brother but only to refer to my corn ball brother.
-- -- -- -- We haven't I haven't barbershop we -- -- -- -- -- -- experiences you know well let me just read you the the definition online is the urban dictionary -- brother an African American male who chooses not to follow the stereotype this includes.
But not limited to being educated well spoken a leader selfless well spoken again and humble.
How politically incorrect is that definition.
Well actually when I when I first got to start my first thought -- -- OK art RG three is a corn ball brother but I guess Chris Brown is a real brother is that is that what Parker is trying to say.
I guess so and and and ambassador Bolton you said you were on to.
You said quote if you pigeon -- someone as the black guy or the woman you're going down the wrong path.
But on this panel I'm definitely comfortable pigeon holing get a -- as the woman's that would be a safe -- here.
Insults about that -- -- but.
Back to you -- Thanks a lot Tom coming up so strap on your content how you -- to watch your back you might get smoked loaded don't join us on the story just on the ambassador Bolton on message.
Wow and anyway.
Will President Obama -- to build a death star.
Magic eight ball says ask again later and stupid magic is.
Well they're urging a course that embraces the force yet some genius American -- -- the Obama administration to build a death star like the one scene in Star Wars.
About damn time.
The petition which -- the government secure funding and resources and begin construction by 2016.
-- already hit that 45000 signature threshold requiring an official White House response can't wait for that.
So why we need this project -- -- they explain.
By focusing our defense resource -- did to a space superiority platform and weapons systems such as a death star.
The government can spur job creation in the field of construction engineering space exploration and more.
And strengthen our national defense in other words to quote Star Wars we can all live long and prosper.
Let's discuss -- up.
Okay ambassador if you say or even hint that you don't think this is a great idea I will fly.
I'll call you a liar on national television I don't want to reveal any classified information I already have inflated that's -- that aren't at all and -- -- know it's all I needed to note that the -- I JFK said we're -- on the moon eight years later we landed on the moon allegedly.
-- isn't this proof that if we said we're moving against or we would build -- -- deaths or did she do it.
I think we should -- -- whole -- -- you know cool stuff I want the -- hammer -- -- fighting web shooters sure I think it's amazing that if you get 25000 signatures President Obama has to respond to make I I don't know what to create to make this happen I don't -- the.
I do think there was a petition.
I think I might have been legally legalizing drugs petition that between 5000 passengers and for some reason they decided not to respect yeah.
The money watch found that -- that created -- -- up.
Jim no real disadvantages to moving -- or -- Well I think it's idiotic and Sorkin movie props one at the end of on nights like to have trust.
Took my motives might -- when I sat on -- yeah.
Can't had to go there wanted to send that -- in the White House to have the president here on -- that we can get funny find out how can actually.
Pretty critical that I fans get on that actually shot until as a Star -- expert on the panel.
And I'm sure you know enough about a lot about constructing deaths -- how many jobs are we looking at creating.
Bob thirty trail yeah it's probably.
And when did I think we got to do you gotta learn from my predecessors here -- -- -- to make.
-- desk job we -- have some sort of I explosive device in the very small area that we can easily blocked out the the protective scare around it and -- it -- is too well -- shots to explode the whole thing.
That cannot happen you would tell you something very similar went public edu and you do wop group we usually I don't worry trash can with a fire and I thought -- -- -- -- 120 fans there are no.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- If nothing else we need to build this thing quickly so that we can have when he first you know opens -- launches it at the grand ceremony.
Dick Cheney to be the one to say now witnessed the firepower of this fully.
-- have to you have to be done quickly people let's get on.
But yeah there's an all out yeah absolutely -- And a thousand voices cried out and then there was -- you have to begin any -- that -- -- my my friend is a blue elephant who plays the French horn is nowhere to work it was a comfortable about it.
-- -- I notice dribbling -- lot here just.
I don't have -- but I'm -- all right -- -- time to take a brake problem what ultimately returns from tonight's musical -- listeners.
