It's not that nobody cares. It's just that our hoses don't reach that far. Where was the South when California burned? How about Eastern Washington last year? Oh, you didn't hear about that, right?

There's no national cable media uproar because:
1) It's logistically impossible to move the fires + the people ("experts") affected into the studio for a roundtable discussion with Don Lemon.
2) There's no money in location shoots (or field journalism) anymore because they blew their budget on a fancy display for John King's teledildonic electoral voting trend analysis platform.
3) Despite my disdain for CNN, the other major networks are just as bad. MSNBC shot their wad on Rachel Maddow's tears. FOX spent theirs on haircuts and phony outrage.
On the plus side, FOX has local affiliates to "lift" footage from.

They covered this as much or more than any random wildfire in Cal. What more do you want them to do? have cameras on a fire for hours straight?
