So why is this getting less media coverage then bombings that killed 3 people?

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.

This is an accident and what's remaining is Search & Rescue.

The other is terrorism and is still on going. And it's not 3 people now. 5 people already (one is a suspect and another a policeman) The fugitive is armed and dangerous (including explosive devices) at large in residential area.

But we should not feel sorry for those who lost their lives in Texas?

Media giving lots of attention and love to the 3 that died in Boston, which I have no problem with by the way... the issue lies within the fact that there's no love and attention by the media for Texas casualties.

It's not about body count. Never has been and never will be.

Tomic [tom-ic] [tom-ic-ing]
verb
1. apply yourself for a small period of time before giving up. (I am tomicing this match).
noun
2. play exceedingly well for a month and then give fallacious promises to the world. (He performed a Tomic)

victims do not really need the attention right now. Lots of people open their home to those people who lost their home or evacuated. Helps are pouring in already. Putting them on the news 24/7 is not necessarily good for them. Without the media does not mean there is no help for them, which is the most important.

On top of that, there are more news worthy happening somewhere else.

Besides, those of us who live away from the coasts already know that anything happening on the east coast is automatically more interesting.

Re: Massive explosion near Waco,Texas. Fire, homes leveled, near fertilizer plant

Also the Boston happenings are more "storybook" and there are villains everyone loves to have a villain in a story.
Plus people know Boston. Nobody knows West,Texas. That's why the media is covering Boston more.

The fertilizer plant that exploded Wednesday had at least 540,000 pounds of potentially dangerous ammonium nitrate in a storage building, a 2012 company filing with the state health department shows.
That’s more than 100 times the weight of the ammonium nitrate and fuel oil mix that Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh used to destroy the Murrah Federal Building 18 years ago Friday.
