How is this our fault?

One of my favorite blogs, Gizmodo, asked: Who is most to blame for the Walmart trampling incident?

The poll -- copied below -- shows all the usual suspects of local store managers, crazy shoppers, the security team and our materialistic society. But one of the options is "The media."


How is it that every time something bad happens one of the choices for blame is "The Media?"

Are we held in such low regard that it is easy to blame us for just about anything?

Copy of survey:
Who is Most to Blame for the Walmart Trampling Incident?
  • The Walmart managers at that store.
  • The shoppers.
  • The security company and its employees.
  • The materialistic society we live in.
  • The media
  • Other
