Interesting Observation

So I was watching the British Coverage (BBC) of the Boston Marathon Bombings and noticed something interesting.

Compared to the relative “sterility” of terrorism coverage in the USA this one is a lot more “real”. While the Hyderabad attacks had images of people wounded being treated, the American papers had relatively tame images.

It’s actually pretty shocking to anyone who isn’t used to this kind of “media” and reporting.

    [...] Avicenna makes an interesting observation about American news coverage of terrorist violence: if it’s foreign, it’s bloodless, if it’s domestic, we stare at the victims. [...]
