News stories overshadowing others
    #2050226 - 10/28/03 12:53 PM (14 years, 7 months ago)


Dude we've got people exploding in Iraq (where occurances are going to be more important for the long-run, IMO, than the fires here in my home state..) but they're covering it up with this fire coverage..

I just wanted to use this as an example of how "TOP STORIES" are chosen, and how foreign policy or strict legislation being passed or general things overseas which may have a much larger impact on how people live their lives (therefore would be much bigger "NEWS") are easily shrouded by other types of stories.

Like I think back during those anthrax "attacks," they passed the patriot act right under everybody's nose.

I guess my point is to keep an eye on the small headlines nowadays, folks, because sometimes the biggest stories bypass the front page and certainly the main headline altogether.

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

americans care more about what's going on in america than what's going on elsewhere.

if there were wildfires in kenya, you can bet that they wouldn't be "overshadowing" coverage of the war.
