Rachel Maddow: Newtown 911 Tapes Have ‘No News Value’

Rachel Maddow weighed in on the debate over airing audio of the 911 calls from the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting on her MSNBC program last night. “There is no news value to the content of those tapes,” she said. “The actual audio is of no news value at all unless you want the thrill of hearing the sound of the actual individual gunshot that might have killed a 7 year old.”

Maddow’s thoughts on the subject are consistent with the NBC News policy. The network has pledged not to air audio from the tapes on any of its broadcasts.
