    When did we start milking tragedies like this? It’s in really poor taste. We have all the information that is available right now, yahoo are running about 28 stories on it nonstop. Out of respect for the victims and their families, the networks and “news” sites really need to take a step back, in my opinion.

    That was the beginning of Nightline.
