Default Re: CHRIS BENOIT DEAD

This is a tragic story but the wall to wall "news" media coverage of these tragic deaths of otherwise unknown people is sickening.

As you might imagine, this is getting huge play in ATL since Benoit lived in Fayette County southwest of Atlanta. It also is the lead story on the CNN web site and I assume is the feature attraction on FOX, MSNBC, and CNN today.

Of course, 999 out of 1000 people could not have told you yesterday this time who Chris Benoit was anymore than they could have told you prior to this past weekend where in Ohio the town in which the poor woman was murdered and dumped in a pond was located.

Nevertheless these tragic events become "breaking news." Modern TV news is nothing more than rubbernecking at accident sites - the gorier the better since if it bleeds it leads. This anything to make a buck attitiude is revolting, but since a significant number of viewers cannot get enough of this dreck I guess it will continue to get ladled up 24-7.

Wonder whether Nancy Grace or Geraldo gets to interview Vince McMahon about this tonight while Larry King rests up for his big interview with Paris Hilton tomorrow night?

I apologize in advance, I did not read all the posts in this thread. But, something has to be done with this form of entertainment. A distinct pattern seems to be forming. And those of are just the ones of which we know about. I think Vince McMahon needs to start answering some very difficult questions.

Not to fan the flames, and, believe me, I'm sensitive to the media hype since I live not all that far from where they found Jessie Davis' body this weekend (The pregnant lady who was killed by her cop boyfriend in Ohio), but I heard that there were some undisclosed details about the Benoit case that were going to be really explosive. Rumors of heroin use, and that this was possible an execution of his family because of debts or something to that effect. I'm not a National Enquirer reader or conspiracy nut, and I didn't even watch or like wrestling, just passing on something I heard on a radio show. I think a lot of it stems from the fact that strangling family members is an extremely personal way to kill someone that close, especially a son or daughter, and it's tough to fit this in with someone other than a true psychopath.

i don't think it was an execution of his family b/c he still has a son and daughter out there.. and the toxication report hasn't been completed yet so no one knows what he could have had in his blood. but it's a sad thing that happened.

I work out almost every day, but I would never do roids. I saw friends freak out over almost nothing in HS, and I guess I could see how someone who abused them over lots of years could get really bad. I also saw how big those dudes got, the same guys that were smaller and weaker than me got big and strong FAST. I guess I can understand how someone might use those things, but it wasn't that important to me.

Nonetheless, I'll pay more attention to this case than I otherwise would just to see.

Any man, regardless of what he may or may not have been on, that takes the life of his loving wife and precious little children with full lives ahead of them is a vile and worthless POS in my book . Sorry I'm not as kind as some of the apologists that will try to make excuses for him.

I am not buying the roid rage excuse here as there is a history of domestic problems being uncovered between Chris and Nancy.

Plus people can and have snapped without the use of drugs. In the end, I don't think anybody will figure out Chris's motive here.
