Internet madness

I have just read in my newspaper this morning that:

An 18-year-old Finnish youth died in hospital last night hours after shooting dead seven of his schoolmates and his head teacher. Earlier, he had announced the bloodbath with a posting on the internet site YouTube.

As horribly tragic as this is, if he had announced his intentions by phoning up Helsingin Sanomat would there be coverage on an Irish newspaper?
