Re: Are Western "first world country" lives seen as more valuable by the media?
I have to agree with this thread. In Bangladesh, a building collapsed and over 400 people died. Yet it didn't even go on the front page in any newspaper. It did not even get a thread here on MTF, and Boston Bombing got over 5 pages. What, do people think things like that happen in Bangladesh every day, so it's not unusual?
