So as you already know there has been a shooting in a movie theater Louisiana state in the US. This thread is not about gun laws or the number of mass shootings in the US. I am just perplexed at the style of reporting of these shootings. Why does the media feel the need to inform us the name of the movie that was being watched. This also happened in the Aurora shooting a few years ago. I don't understand. Why does it matter what movie they were watching?
