Up until yesterday (mid day noonish Friday) this wasnt a blurb on the news media's radar...it happened Wednesday night. All day Thursday it was headlines all over the internet bloggers sites. It wasnt until the story picked up traction by the internet that the story was picked up by the main stream media...Friday afternoon.
International news groups were running the story Thursday but our media didnt pick up on it until Friday...a day after international media was already running with the story. It was all over Facebook Thursday.
It just wasnt important to the US media at the time.
Apparently they were too busy telling everyone Ben Aflac (sp?) was going to be the new Batman.
