    This morning a bulletin flashed through on CNN it was about a shooting at an Orlando Florida workplace. 5 people were killed by a former disgruntled employee. The shooter ended the shooting spree by killing himself.

    Back when things were normal in Washington yes, before Donald Trump this incident would have had intense all day coverage by all the cable and free tv networks. I watched all day hoping to get more info of the Orlando shootings and I ended up evening amazed at how little attention this story was getting. All the attention was centered on Donald Trump.
    It is astounding. I bet if the second coming of Christ occurred tonight, there would be a brief announcement of his arrival and then all the news coverage would return to Trump for the next 24 hours.
    Is this all real or have we all slipped into Alice's "looking glass"?

    might be the bias on your so called news outlets, they will make more noise over something like Kathy Griffin being a victim for her stunt than something like the Orlando shooting, Terrorist Problems in Europe, (2 in England in as man weeks, another in France and 1 in toronto). plays more to their reader base.
    I get CNN from the US but much prefer to watch BBC, or I24 when I want to know whats going on in the world.

    You think anyone will even care when the next school mass shooting breaks out? Just ten minutes of coverage before it falls off the radar. The American media are becoming unbelievable.

    My daughter teaches middle school. She says her students constantly ask her why does the news always talk about Donald Trump and that they were tired of hearing about him all the time. There are more pressing and serious issues taking place in the world that need all of our attention, LIKE THIS:
