Anyway, you all have fun with whatever you are doing, but I think I'm pretty clear on your motivations. If three people died at an international sporting event in Europe, I doubt that we would have these same sort of complaints on this board.
You're assuming wrong in my case.
Plus, it's not a matter of "fun". How can people have fun over the deaths and misery of people?
It's a matter of analysing how the media covers it.
If a disaster happened in Europe and another disaster took place in N-Africa around the same time for example, and the media would focus largely on the disaster in Europe, I would have the same problem with it.
Again, this is not a lack of compassion for all who died and suffered. Does one person really have a claim to a higher sensitivity if they post RIP on a tennnis forum? Honestly?
My concern is independent from that. Neither has it to do with an anti-US sentiment you seem to be throwing all too easily at a lot of people. I find the same narrow focus in Europe and it bothers me there too. In fact, I tend to write emails from time to time to news editors, asking for motivations for focusing on news items while briefly mentioning others. Some reply, others don't. News reports seem to be increasingly about tv ratings, which didn't happen when I was little (due to there being only few tv networks so there was no competition to speak of). News reports shouldn't be about what people "want" to hear but about what's actually happening.
