Isn't it kind of sad how media affects the mass population?

I mean, soldiers get blown up overseas and they get a little headline on the side. As if "muhahaha everything is going to plan", and the soldiers get forgotten by everybody other than their friends and family. Yet here we have an event that's being broadcast 24/7 on every newstation. An event that's ever so common overseas in places like Iraq and Syria. Stuff like that happens, get over it. The saddest part is that people are more likely to remember the name of the assailants rather than the victims. Good job media.

I've seen more coverage of a dog barking "I love you" over soldiers getting screwed at home AND on the front line. Now we have 24/7 coverage of the explosion in Boston...REPEATING itself over and over, and VERY MINOR coverage in Waco. Our media system is just confused and greedy on certain coverage for ratings.

There are so many things that are going on in the world, that could and probably should have our attention; and yet the media has the power to redirect our interest away from that and onto other, more trivial matters. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that the Boston bombings are trivial, but there are a lot of things that we are missing out on for smaller 'news' items. For example, a while ago here in New Zealand, the biggest news was that New Zealand apples were finally able to be exported to Australia. I could think of several things going on in the world that should have commanded our attention; but the media wanted us to think of apples. and so apples we thought of.
