They report on what is popular and what people will watch. The presidential nominations are the big thing right now. People are sick of hearing about Iraq. C'mon you can figure this out on your own.

News, as wrong and as sad as it is, is another TV show that aims for nothing but ratings.


So they only report what will bring them ratings, and right now the hot topic is elections and shoving their choice candidates down our throat while completely ignoring others.

Unfortunately, blood sells ratings. Since things improved in Iraq, the media has slowed down their reporting from there.

^ wishful thinking. nothing is improved in iraq.

print news is budget cutting like mad because they aren't selling papers anymore, so papers and syndication services that might've had an international shop years ago now have none, and they have to choose between what they cover, and covering elections is easy and cheap.

Elections and the economy are better time/money trade offs for the networks right now.
