New York Bias

Don’t get me wrong, New York in my opinion 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 and in CNN’s case the world to give this much attention the the train shooting when there is much worse violence going on around the country. I understand that many media networks are based out of there, but that is why the networks have a national and local desk. The national desk should not prioritize stories out of geographic convenience or any loyalty they may have to any particular city.  I don’t think the ratings argument flies here either because the coverage creates the ratings. Self-fulfilling prophecy.
