The Single Worst Editorial Decision in the History of Broadcast News?

That's what Hugh Hewitt is asking about NBC's decision to air video and pictures from the Virginia Tech murderer. More here.

Update: John Mark Reynolds weighs in. An excerpt: "They have the right to do it, but it was not right to do it. . . . NBC should not be censored by the government, but any good person censors self. Freedom to do a thing (which NBC should have) does not make it right or keep the rest of us from making the proper judgment that NBC was wrong."
