From the desk of Howard Kurtz: Will media stay focused on gun story?

Editor's note: Howard Kurtz is the host of CNN's "Reliable Sources" and is Newsweek's Washington bureau chief. He is also a contributor to the website Daily Download.

(CNN) - The conventional wisdom is that Newtown has just a few more days to run as a major media story.

The reporters are pulling out of the grief-stricken Connecticut town, which means no more live shots every hour. The White House press corps responded to President Obama's announcement Wednesday of a task force on gun control with the first three reporters asking about the impending fiscal cliff. And after every previous mass shooting, from Columbine to Aurora, the media's attention has soon drifted away.

But will this time be different? Find out what Howie thinks here.

    You have lost the bubble on professional objectivity. The topic of discussion needs to be about reduction of mass murders not gun control. Gun control is one of the potential solutions, arguably the least effective. You are having a discussion all focused around gun control. Gun control may be a solution but may be the least effective intervention. The media, especially CNN has lost me. I have watched CNN daily for 30 years. No more. You have lost your credibility with me. Mental health reform (listen to the Diane Rehm show this week) and security for schools needs to be looked at as well. You have become a mouthpiece for the gun control lobby. I look to CNN for professional coverage of issues. You have not delivered. You have been offensive to the pro gun voice to the point of vilifying your guests. It was unprofessional and has destroyed your credibility with millions of Americans who want a real discussion on the mass murder issue.
