    Considering nobody has died, I don't think the wall-to-wall coverage on all the news channels is justified.

    So a intentional act of detonating explosives in one of the biggest cities in the world shouldn't have major news coverage?

    As I say, nobody has died, so no I don't think this event does merit rolling news coverage. Why should this news story eclipse everything else that is going on in the world?

    Because this was an attack on a major nation that has strong ties to the beliefs of many people in this country, what story do you think deserves more coverage?

    :rolleyes: Nowhere have I said I don't care, I just don't think it is serious enough to merit wall-to-wall news coverage (how many times do I have to repeat that?).

    Minnesota tragedy was religion of peace again, by the sound...

    Minnesota stabbing: Eight injured, suspect shot dead - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-37399862

    No more details for New York but was certainly a deliberate act. Awful. At what point in your life does a bomb attack or mass stabbing become appropriate?

    Hope everybody recovers. Thoughts with victims, families and emergency services.

    Because humans have yet to evolve beyond emotions. Every human has the capacity to revert to a bestial state.

    There will only be peace when all humans are rational, and share the same goals.

    Very scary, but I do feel like the fact that the bomb failed to do any real harm makes it undeserving of the level of press it's getting. It's an important story of course, but not devastating.

    P.S Religion of Peace.
