CNN Posts Victims' Tribute Page

April 24, 2007 12:36 AM

Amidst the debates last week on NBC’s decision to air the video material it received from Virgina Tech killer Cho Seung-Hui, an interesting thing happened over on CNN.com.

Site visitors were drawn to the victims’ tribute page at www.cnn.com/victims. As of April 23, the page had generated more than 17.7 million page views. The memorial page includes profiles of the victims, accompanied by thoughts and memories shared by family members and friends.

Online users can also submit their own videos, photos or comments to honor the Virginia Tech victims, through CNN's I-Report at http://www.cnn.com/vtechireport, CNN said.

CNN also said that the page ranked as one of the most trafficked single features in CNN.com’s history.
