Nashville Covenant School Shooter's Journal Entries Posted Online

Summary from the AllSides News Team

Images of supposed journal entries from the shooter who killed six people at the Nashville Covenant School in March were released online Monday.

Details: The images were first released by Steven Crowder (Right bias), prompting backlash from parents who have sought to prevent their release.

Key Quotes: One photographed journal entry dated February 3, 2023, reads, “Kill those kids! Those crackers. Going to private fancy schools with those fancy kwackis + sports backpacks with their daddies mustangs + convertibles. F**k you little s**ts. I wish to shoot you weak a** d***s w/your mop yellow hair, wanna kill all you little crackers!!! Bunch of little f****ts w/your white privileges f**k you f****ts.” Shortly after the photos were released, the Metro Nashville Police Department released a statement reading, “The MNPD is in communication with the Metropolitan Department of Law as an investigation, begun this morning, continues into the dissemination of three photographs of writings during an online discussion about Covenant school. The photographs are not MNPD crime scene images.”

How the Media Covered It: A number of outlets across the spectrum, from the New York Times (Lean Left bias) to Fox News (Right bias), refrained from reporting on the contents of the entries, instead focusing coverage on the leak itself, highlighting pushback from parents and local officials. Reporting on the contents of the photographed journal entries was mainly seen in right-rated outlets, such as The Daily Wire (Right bias) and The Daily Caller (Right bias).
