Letter: Buried story
I wonder if anyone else is asking themselves, why the news media is following the lead of publications like the Monitor, which buried its report on the plight of the residents of Staten Island on Page A4 on Nov. 3. If my memory serves me right, the Hurricane Katrina story was front-page news for days. Also, many of the Katrina stories focused on the lack of response by the federal government with President George W. Bush the primary target. The current situation doesn’t seem that different. Do you wonder why the media is giving President Obama a pass as his name isn’t even mentioned in the story?
