THIS ‘If anyone can hear us … help.’ Puerto Rico’s mayors describe widespread devastation from Hurricane Maria I've been watching the channels and other media there's barely a word being noted on this tragedy (except for PBS and such, which ALL watch, right??) Texas...tons of coverage Florida...tons of coverage (even those they get a few every year...) Puerto Rico *crickets* This island US territory just got out of bankruptcy, with minimal assistance after begging the Congress. Mind you, these are STILL American citizens...they're just not a state. And now this...A huge hurrican, right down the center. Yes, I know it's an island...it takes some time to get things there. Yes, I know it's without power all over, so it's more difficult to cover things with cameras and other fully exotic media equipment. But seriously?? We're talking about media that's been ALL over... Middle-East, Africa, Haiti, Afghanistan, etc, etc, etc (in the middle of wars and it all) It comes down to "liberal" media (and that's sarcasm for those who claim it is such) Not focusing on it, for purely capitalist reasons (and I like capitalism...) The bottom line, what sells news and ads... So, this very large terrible thing occurs...and it's not all over the news. I see charities and requests for aid for Texas Nada for Puerto Rico. Sorry, if I'm going to give money out...it's going to be for this. The other places...yes, they're hit and hurt But they've got representation...industry and oh so much more. Including connections and kick-backs to assist. PR...it's stranded with not much attention. And that's just a shame.
