Maybe I'm too insensitive. And maybe I'm being unfair.
But I cannot avoid feeling disgusted with the media coverage of the “Virginia Tech drama”. Just because I refuse to share this aproach where some are more equal than others.
Why should all the main channels spend hours and hours broadcasting about this event? I don't see this kind of coverage about the deaths in Iraq or other places in the world: I don't see the parents crying for their dead kids, I don't see the survivers telling how they escaped, I don't see reporters on site explaning over and over again how it happened, I don't see politicians proclaming their shock and solidarity with the families...
And I don't see how the life of US or European citizens can be worth more than the life of Iraqis, Sudanese or any others.
