Absolutely true. And not only mass shootings but any disaster from floods to tornadoes. “Because tragedy is their business model.”
Reason being they’re easy to cover and the coverage goes on for days, even weeks, filling the time or space that would otherwise have to be filled by creativity.
Which is in very short supply these days. Modern journalists being liberal Democrat operatives who are dumb as rocks.

“All told, Amazon has hired some 1,000 M.B.A.s in the past year, according to Miriam Park, Amazon’s director of university programs—a drop in the bucket for a company that plans to add 50,000 software developers in the next year. But Amazon’s flood-the-zone approach to recruiting and hiring future M.B.A.s—in some cases before they have taken a single business-school course—is feeding the career frenzy on campus and rankling some rival recruiters.”
Judging from my monthly Amazon bill I already do work for them.
UPDATE: Commenter Galos Gann: “Saint Peter don’t ya call me, cause I ain’t got time — I owe my soul to the Amazon Prime.”
Forbes: “…the facts in the public domain fall well short of evidencing criminal intent, let alone a conspiracy and an underlying criminal statute that parties conspired to violate.”
Nevertheless it’s past time to fire Mueller, give Don Jr a pardon if that’s necessary, and let the chips fall. The Reps will never impeach a president of their own party and the Dems have no power to do it.
UPDATE: Mueller already was moving the goalposts by investigating Don Jr. Now he’s turning to Trump’s Russian business transactions. Come on, DJT, show some balls. Fire him and his cadre of Democrat lawyers.
“Churchill’s famous speech of British defiance against her foes was delivered on June 4, 1940: ‘We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender[.]’
“77 years later, his countrymen are being told to flee, cower, and call for Mummy. Shame.”
Fighting back is much more appropriate, and generally more effective.
Comment by Ish at Instapundit.
Comment of the week at Instapundit comes from a fellow signing himself as BackwardsBoy:
“This Hitler fellow must be a Buddhist; he keeps getting reincarnated as a Republican president.”
“Donald Trump is an authentic American hero. He’s seventy years old and a billionaire. He could be retired, playing golf, bouncing his grand-children on his knee and making love with his super-hot wife. Instead he is tirelessly stumping around the country while being ceaselessly shat on by the entire Ruling Class, their media and their sycophants. He is literally risking his life to save the country he loves that gave him so much. Anyone who says otherwise is a charlatan or a fool.”

Much as I like candy corn and as thankful as I am for my blood sugar levels that its mainly available this time of year, candy corn beer sounds just too, too awful.
