I think you dont got it.
You may want to review the post again and see that nightime Fox,CNN, MSNBC, etc.. only do "stories" about the whites and rich.
I just read over my post again, and realize I came across a little more sarcastic than I had intended.
My point, I was trying to make, is the reason for MSM focusing on a certain race/gender/class most certainly does
have to do with money.
How do you suppose the MSM gets a hold of these stories? It's the family, the lawyers, the community who contacts the media. The more resources
(money) the family has, the more they can afford to run a successful campaign.
Hypothetically, two girls went missing last night. Both girls are from the same city and have access to the same media outlets.
How could any of us know anything of these two girls missing? How could the media possibly know?
Well, it's the parents (or someone close) who get busy contacting every outlet, every source, exhausting every single resource they have available.
One girl's parents (who just so happens to live in an affluent part of town, because they can afford it) manages to gather 100K rather quickly, and
happens to mention this when they contact the local media.
The first girl's SAHM has 'all the time in the world' to put forth a rather large and sucessful campaign. This is her 'new' job, to find her
child. The reward pot grows, as the family liquidates and moves other financial resources around. Pretty soon, the reward pot reaches 250K, then
500K. The higher the reward, the greater the coverage (just look at today's lottery, higher it goes - more we hear about it in the media).
The second girl's parents (who just so happens to live in a less than affluent part of town, because that's all they can afford) has little to offer
in reward money. They also contact the media, but when asked about a reward, they hesitate. The newsroom says, "call back when you find out the
Tomorrow is Monday and both parents (girl #2) work. Which parent takes off work to dedicate, full-time, to finding their child? Can they afford to
give up part of their income? Unfortunately, this girl's parents live paycheck to paycheck, thus do not have the support, nor resources to dedicate
to a full search campaign (as does the first set of parents). Thus, they do not have the reserves nor the cash to gain attention of the public and
It is all about money, but it's no conspiracy. The richer you are, the more funds you have to 'make things happen'. Who's fault is that? The
media? Our society?
I don't believe it's anyone's 'fault'. It's quite simple really. The more money you have, the more attention you get. It's really not a race
issue. It's a money issue.
