The Huffington Post reports:
Gun control advocate David Hogg called on the press to stop using the name and image of the 17-year-old student who police say carried out the mass shooting at a Texas high school on Friday. Hogg’s call echoes that of Anderson Cooper, who said on his CNN show Friday night that he would not be naming the shooter during the program. “The name of the alleged killer will not be said nor will his face be shown. The only thing he deserves is justice. His victims deserve far better,” Cooper said.
I don’t know the shooters name and don’t want to. If you agree, anytime you see a post with their name or face from news organizations post #NoNotoriety with one of the victim’s names. We make these sick people known worldwide for their horrifying acts, let’s stop that.

On our program it is the stories of the survivors and victims we tell, explains Anderson Cooper
