Is “the media ignores black news stories” becoming an untrue cliché?
That’s my question. Is “the media/world ignores black news stories” becoming an untrue cliché?
When the news of the kidnapped girls broke, I spotted immediate outrage. Why is the media ignoring this story? Why does the world not care? Etc.
True, when the story broke, it may be that the news focused more on other things like Malaysian Airlines story and the one about a ferry. If we graph news coverage the missing 200 girls’ story could come out with less media share. But to say that No one cares is not true. “200 girls missing. No one cares!” this hyperbole is not true. Someone cares.
