Video looks at how media covers mass shootings

Click below for a fascinating video story that looks at how the media covers mass shootings. A new study suggests that media coverage increases chances for copycat shootings. Our reporter explores this question – and how the media could be more sensitive in covering these incidents – through interviews with the author of the study and two veteran TV journalists – KATC-TV anchor Jim Hummel and former KATC reporter Alex Labat – who covered the 2015 attack at the Grand Theater in Lafayette.
