i just find it interesting that a voting day gets more publicity and more talk than things such as teh recent disaster....if this happened in north america or europe there would be a far bigger cry. me no like, this is all.

Americans rarely care about things if they are not directly affected.

9/11 had, what, a couple thousand dead people? This has at least 10 times that, and it gets 10, maybe 15 minutes on the news that I saw, while 9/11 got at least 80 hours or so of non-stop shitty news that didn't even say anything new

So is the arrogance of America

So long as you are praised think only that you are not yet on your own path but on that of another.

There are two ways to get to the top of an oak tree: start climbing or sit on an acorn.

Are you a carrot, an egg, or a coffee bean?

Yeah?  Good, discuss away...  At least ODD has a sticky for helping these people :wink:

See, you're talking coverage again...  Why in the hell shouldn't the politics forum talk about...  politics?  THAT'S WHAT IT IS FOR.

And yes, it is a sad sad state of things, but...  Like someone else mentioned, most people in the West (TM) don't care in the least about things in the East (R), solely because it doesn't appear to affect them directly - and the mass media isn't going to keep up readership/ratings by hitting hard on things their membership doesn't care about.  Unfortunately, it comes down to economics.

So why argue what "most people" think? So you can understand why networks put out the news they do?
