What become major news is what major news thinks will sell the most.
What will sell the most is what the most people choose to care about, rightly or wrongly.
Most people care about flash, and ignore substance. Care for surface, ignore depth.
Most people, frankly, are stupid ignorant uninformed sheeple.
If you think the race and socio-economic status of the victims does not play a factor, a meaningful factor, in media coverage decisions and viewer caring, you're clearly in the uninformed category.
Ignorance must be bliss.
