    I found myself asking the morbid question: "How many Congolese would need to be slaughtered to make the front page of the New York Times?".

    I help people because i want to, not because of rep.

    Here's the source :eek: just realised how big the link is:

    http://web.ask.com/redir?bpg=http%3a...html&qte=0&o=0

    The link doesn't seem too work. So go to http://www.ask.com

    type: how many people to die to make the front page

    then go to this link: The Armenian Weekly Online: May 2003

    It's about the sixth one down.

    I don't know if this is the exact quote you want, but John Allen Paulos wrote,
    The journalistic rule that one American equals five Englishmen equals 500 Equadoreans equals 50,000 Rwandans varies with time and circumstance, but it does contain an undeniable truth: Americans, like everyone else, care much less about some parts of the world than about others.

    Everyone - thanks so much for your help. Elpaw - I don't think that that quote was the one that I was looking for, but it is a very suitable substitute - it will go in my article!

    That quote is attributed to John Galsworthy (1867-1933), if I recall correctly.
