I have an entire database that tracks how long mainstream media covers mass shootings. It's insane how quickly the news cycle moves away from coverage.

The Las Vegas Massacre was covered a mere 9 days before MGM got involved, threatened to pull all advertising from mainstream media that continued coverage, and that was that. Once it was determined that there was NO clear motive, radio silence. (A sporadic blip about funerals, a 20/20 piece on citizen heros, and it was a wrap.)

Here is how insignificant El Paso and Dayton were:

31 people died in El Paso, Dayton mass shootings. Twitter data shows talk faded in just 10 days.

Many are becoming desensitized... Especially the news people... They see it more often than anyone else... And they don't show emotion when reporting these horrible news stories.

Hopefully, the vast majority of β€˜this nation’ are waiting till Tuesday, November 3rd, 2020 to seriously clean house! With Mitch & the Moron working for the NRA … it’ll take some serious housekeeping to scour this national mess..

No real change there. Two ancient proverbs of the press:
If it bleeds, it leads.
Today's news is tomorrow's fish wrap.

Media giants definitely cheapen lives lost, because they favor their profit margin above real democracy. Such petty motives they protect.
