Don’t get me wrong, New York City is one of the greatest cities in the world and possibly the greatest (don’t tell Chicago, LA, or Albuquerque I said that), but it is disrespectful to the rest of the country or in CNN’s case the world when they are constantly covering the train shooting from yesterday when there are much worse acts of violence happening on a daily basis right now.  I understand the that many media companies operate out of NYC, but there is a reason why these networks have local and national desks that should be separate from each other.  Geographic convenience and loyalty should not be excuses for giving one city an unbalanced amount of attention. The ratings argument doesn’t fly either because the media creates the ratings through their coverage.  #selffulfillingprophecy
