It's Not News Unless It Fits the Narrative

Did you hear about the terrorist attack in Florida last week? Unless you live in Jacksonville, you probably haven't. Outside of local news (and, now, online), there's been no mention of this act -- even dismissed as a "deranged individual" or a "one-off".


This is the direct result of profit-driven news divisions.

Wow. Gives one pause to consider all the other stuff that's not being reported...
