[no by-line]

  Television network programmers reacted to the massacre by immediately pulling any series or film with a violent content.
  On Monday night, as the tragedy was still unfolding, the Ten Network decided to replace an episode of The Simpsons titled Bart, The Murderer and arranged a replacement for the Charles Bronson film Death Wish II, scheduled for Friday night.
  At the Nine Network, programmers immediately replaced tonight's planned movie Goodfellas, a particularly violent gangster film, with the drama The Power of One.
