Don't you think it's just the instant 24/7 reporting we've got these days with social media and the like?
That, and the media in general focusing on specific issues. Remember a few years ago everyone was being bitten by pitbulls in the UK until the papers
got bored with the story.
Dog attack rates are around the same these days, just it ain't reported anymore.
shoddy, lowcost, tightass, maintenance spending, is my best guess. this is what happens when you try and cut costs on safety....big business, and
these asshats that graduated from business schools, don't give a damn what the engineers that have the experience and expertise have to say....
The Tianjin explosion was massive, i belive because of the size we are all now looking out for more, had this explosion not happened the other
explosions (apart from the bomb) wouldnt have gained as much intrest. its like the pitball story as mentioned above.
Same with meteors, only 20 odd years ago none of us would have known about them striking the Earth if they weren't in our immediate limited regional
news media outlets.
I keep an open mind though, but my gut instinct is just 24/7 international news reporting and social media.
They're not all the same type of explosions, which leads me to think that there is nothing in it, and just as grainofsand suggests, it's probably 24/7
rolling news and social media. We live in such a different world from as little as 10 years ago.
Has there been any further news on the explosion in China and what caused it?
The bomber in Bangkok is still on the run, but no further news on any arrests.
I haven't heard about the Japan explosion until reading this thread.
Terror is for the sake of terror. What good is terror if it is not plastered across MSM outlets? The lack of real terror can be made up for in
plastering unrelated events across MSM outlets. The instant ability to boost ratings when there are no stories, is a boon for MSM.
