    Some thoughts on this Brian…

    First, I believe those at CNN and Fox meet every morning to decide which stories matter and which ones don’t. (defined: Which stories will attract ratings). This one obviously didn’t matter.

    Second, terrorism, or even the hint of terrorism, will always demand more attention than a story about a likely domestic situation.

    Third, the PNW still is considered an outpost by east coast media. The idea is nobody cares about Alaska’s southern suburbs. Seriously.

    Now, if a bomb goes off at Safeco, it is (for lack of a better term), a whole new ballgame. I don’t mean to be flippant, but this is the reality with cable/network news today.

    Living in a travel trailer in a park should be an automatic denial to own a gun.

    And the reason no one cares is because this happened in a mobile home park and involves meth and heroin. Not exactly the type of people the public cares about.
