WORLD NEWS: Over 30,000 feared dead in Pakistan Earthquake-Where's the American media?
At least 30,000 men, women and children are feared killed and tens of thousands more injured in what has been declared the worse earthquake in Pakistan history. The deadly quake will reportedly leave 2.5 million people needing shelter after the monterous 7.6 earthquake destroyed the Pakistan-Indian border. The damage spans at least 250 miles from Jalalbad in Afghanistan to Srinagar in northern India.
But where is the American media coverage. We have to flip through all of the cable news channels non-stop to catch even a quick blurb about this catastrophe. Why? Don't we care about the lives and horrific deaths of others. We expect other countries to care about us when catastrophes occur here in America, and the world outpouring of care is always tremendous toward us. But it is a sad day when tens of thousands abroad can be killed by a natural disaster and we just yawn about it.
