Oh yeah, Those Chilean Miners are Finally Free.

20 10 2010

I just did a Google search for “FoxNews Chile Miner Rescue” which took .20 seconds and yielded 104,000 results. Four of the Top 5 results, were in reference to ratings about coverage rather than actual coverage of the feat.

Last Wednesday, after 70 days trapped underground, all 33 Chilean miners were rescued.

Just days later, there is more attention being paid to the channels who broadcast the story (FoxNews, CNN, and MSNBC) than the volunteers who helped shape it’s outcome.

I have a problem with this.  I feel as though the reporters are eclipsing the report.
