You can bet that if it happened in New York City, the newscasts and talk shows would have been all over the story.
But, it happened in West Virginia, so who cares. Right?
300,000 residents of West Virginia were without safe drinking water this weekend after 7,500 gallons of 4-methylcyclohexane methanol leaked into the Elk River. It was the most significant (and potentially scandalous) environmental disasters in America since the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
So how much time did the Sunday talk shows devote to the story?
They obsessed on the Chris Christie bridge scandal and how it will effect his Presidential run 2 years from now?
Maybe the Sunday shows should venture outside the beltway from time to time.
They might actually find some real news.
