Korean movie suggested as inspiration to Virginia Tech killer

Another popular argument, after Virginia Tech, was that the media were partly to blame. The killer had watched coverage of a previous massacre, at Columbine High School in Colorado, and decided to copy it. He also wanted to be famous. He filmed himself posing with guns and spouting an incoherent manifesto of grievances. Between his first two murders and his last 30, he posted the footage to NBC, a television channel, hoping they would broadcast it. They obliged. He thus became an icon to other deranged loners. A young man with a large collection of guns was arrested in Nevada last year after he sent threatening e-mails to two women whom the Virginia Tech killer once harassed. His lawyer said he was just trying to start a discussion about school violence. He is about to go on trial.

He also reportedly made references to Virginia Tech killer Seung Hui Cho and Columbine High School shooters Eric Harris and Dylann Klebold.

Due to criticism from some quarters regarding the fact that NBC made the Virginia Tech killer’s manifesto a cornerstone of its coverage of the tragedy, NBC News today released the following statement:

RE: Virginia Tech Killer Of 32 Students Alive?..

(CNN) -- A female graduate student at Virginia Tech was killed Wednesday night when a man she knew attacked her with a knife and decapitated her, a school spokesman said.New information emerged Thursday on how Virginia Tech killer Cho Seung-Hui acquired one of the guns used in the attack and a military knife seen in photos he sent to NBC News.Sadly, even if all reasonable preventive measures are in place, unexpected and unprepared for events such as the Heavens Gate mass suicide and Virginia Tech killings are still likely to happen. But perhaps this would occur with a lesser frequency.This apology was not enough for the likes of Fox TV's Bill O'Reilly who argued that "the Virginia Tech killer was Korean, not American." When Jam Sardar, an Iranian American and correspondent for Comcast Network, went on Fox News Channel's "O'Reilly Factor" on April 20, 2007 to discuss the question of whether representation of Cho's ethnicity was overplayed, O'Reilly did most of the talking, argued that Cho's ethnicity deserved top billing and denied that Arab Americans were victims of any significant backlash after September 11, leading Sardar to comment: "Thanks for letting me listen."
