Guess CNN feels like they've milked the Virginia Tech killer video dry. The following memo just came down:
Subject: Cho video and gun pictures—NO MORE USEAGE!!!
Per Jon Klein,
*No more use of the Cho videotape on our air.
* No more use of pictures of Cho with guns.
Media Operations is in the process of killing out of the system all vo's and sots with still pictures of Cho holding guns plus all video of him talking.
The John King package, First Killing Why?, and the Sean Callebs pkg. Cho the Early Years have been updated using appropriate video. All packages are being updated on a per request basis.
The library will be archiving the original versions of the packages, but these can only be run per approval from Standards and Practices.
Well, great! Now the victims' families can feel better about appearing on CNN. Everyone wins!
