A tape reportedly made by Osama Bin Laden to air after his death was said to being circulated by his supporters. That news came not long after government officials said they had made no call on whether to release their own images of his dead body.

Count CNN's Anderson Cooper as being against the media airing that bin Laden farewell message.

Told by Wolf Blitzer that he expected whether to air the tape to be a journalism ethics issue everyone would soon be wrestling with, Cooper appeared to have done all his wrestling.

He told Blitzer and viewers flatly that no show he was on or was associated with would air that tape, calling Bin Laden a mass murderer who should never be heard from again.
