Why is it that Palestine gets all of the attention meanwhile the killing (often worst) in other regions do NOT get the same press time as the
Palestine? Every time!
They have received coverage. It's mostly to do with the 24-hour news cycle:
The 24 hour news cycle (or 24/7 news cycle) refers to 24-hour investigation and reporting of news, concomitant with fast-paced lifestyles. The
vast news resources available in recent decades have increased competition for audience and advertiser attention, prompting media providers to deliver
the latest news in the most compelling manner in order to remain ahead of competitors. Television, radio, print, online, and apps for news all have
many suppliers who want to be relevant to their audiences and deliver news first.
Simply put, the news cycle is constantly running, so the media is always on the edge, ready to report on breaking news. You will find that most major
outlets continue to focus on the stories, so long as it gives them an audience, and an edge over competitors. When one story becomes obsolete, or
another one occurs, the news cycle will proceed to devour the next event. You will notice that with the 24-hour news cycle, the media will focus on
one major story for a couple of days (or weeks, even), until another breaking news story occurs. For example:
ISIS invades Iraq ->
Israel bombards Gaza ->
MH17 crash ->
Israel invades Gaza ->
And on, and on, and on, and on.
The events in Syria, Iraq and Libya have been reported on. It's just that with the speed of which the news cycle runs, one would be easily forgiven
if they missed it.
Overall, it's not that the media hasn't reported on it. It's just that the media has reported on it, and has since moved on.
