Great question.....I was thinking the same thing, only from a different perceptive, as it sounds like the OP can relate in a more direct and personal
way than the average person. My thoughts were that while this whole mess is sad for all concerned, how did this become anything more then another
tragic death caused by fear or misunderstanding between the 2 parties involved?
A few days ago I spent the day sitting with my Dad in the hospital, he likes CNN and watching news channels so I watched MSM all day with him. What
struck me as so odd was that there was one small piece that I saw all day on Snowden and his conference with Amnesty International that was covered by
thousands of reporters from all over the world, one of the biggest stories to hit the US and the World, got a small, IMO biased, piece and the Martin
/ Zimmerman case dominated the airways?
I guess my question is DO people really care as much as is being reported, how much does the media influence WHAT people care about? If the attention
was given in the same sort of way to Snowden, would it be being dismissed by so many people? It seems that issues that effect the course of humanity
are not as worthy of true debate and airtime. Sure, you get a few brave souls such as Ron Paul who get minimal airtime, only to be overwhelmed with
propaganda "talking points" that seem to minimize just how IMPORTANT this story is and imo the actual facts are being outright manipulated to
I don't know, will be interesting to read how others respond in this thread.......
