Perhaps you are a little bit confused and do not realize that Boston was full of media for the marathon, while there were propaply very few western media types in remote Iran waiting to take pictures of the next earthquake. So yes, not so much visual news, but as for covering the story, it is covered across the western media.
I not am talking about the Iranian earthquake. Where the hell
did you get that from?
This had almost NO extensive coverage in the Western media besides a few articles. But it was not covered in many TV broadcasts.
