Actually, have you seen the projected damage? A third of the U.S. could possibly be affected by Sandy. That's why.
Again, why is everyone so upset over the coverage? Why didn't you complain about 9/11 being broadcast across the nation? That was only New York City...JUST ONE CITY! But as soon as a hurricane whose span extends beyond the grasp of a single city hits the coast, OH HELL NAW!! I want my sports, not the damn weather!
Seriously, what is your PROBLEM, people?
Our president seems to have allowed people to be murdered while he watched from a drone. It is getting no news coverage at all. Sandy, as a Cat 1 hurricane is commanding more coverage than Katrina as a Cat 5.
What the news is telling me is that all the wealth of the East Coast matters far more than the suffering of those poor folks in New Orleans. That is, if coverage equates to importance. If you believe that fallacy, no wonder our nation is up shiz creek.
