Population is population. More people live in Brooklyn than in North and South Dakota and Montana COMBINED.
Shockingly, the more people that live somewhere, the more coverage it gets.
No, not really.
There’s pretty good sized cities in the midwest that have disasters that befall them, and the news is over and done in two days.
The NYC media complex engages in self-centered naval gazing as their favorite pastime. They’re widely known around the world of over-hyping their own sense of importance.
It’s also why they can’t imagine anyone voting for Romney (or any Republican). They’re all Democrats, they live among almost all Democrats, who is stupid enough to not see what they see?
That simplistic naval-gazing sophistry wasn't always the way it was. Until the 90s when the nets pulled their bureaus out of places like Chicago and Houston. F the MSM.
