I noticed I don't see all the anti Muslim chatter on Facebook. These political extremist post this stuff and a nut case acts on it. Facebook is full of extremist both left and right. I don't know what to do about it.
I have no doubt if that occurred in NZ you would see similar outcry. This isnt an us/them political spin thing. This is 49 unarmed, innocent family members dead on the ground in a first world country. I suspect the lack of coverage in Nigeria has more to do with the fact anything in Africa and India gets very little press.This is terrible that this happened. But honestly this happens a lot all over the world to other groups of people, who for political reasons don't get the same amount of coverage and public outcry. Where's the outrage and public outcry for, about the same amount of Christians killed in a single attack Nigeria 15 days ago. Just my opinion. Like i said this is a terrible thing this happened.

Okay well the discussion I thought was about the shooting not an airplane crash and I was speaking generally about a bombardment of media so there's really no channel to change@D.M.V
It's all a perspective.
Local coverage immediately noted 18 Canadians died in the Ethiopia crash.
Little else besides a total.
African's were not impressed with the coverage of the "western media"
AP wire received a Backlash over biased foreign media coverage of Ethiopia crash.
"Soon on Sunday (March 7) after the crash Ethiopia Airlines crash in Bishoftu, the Associated Press, AP, came in for flak for seemingly prioritizing non-Africans in a tweet announcing that there were no survivors from the crash.
Many social media users called them out for being insensitive especially when Kenya for example suffered the highest casualty with 32 deaths. Most Twitter users slammed the AP for the tweet – it did not respond to any of the critical messages.
It wasn’t before long that Wall Street Journal was under fire for a print edition that said a plane had crashed in Africa.
Again people expressed disbelief at the notion that a news outfit as that will lump together over fifty countries into an incident. The headline ‘Jet Crash in Africa Kills 157,’ did not sit down well with many.
The Financial Times also intimated in an article that Ethiopian was known as Africa’s best carrier before the crash. Tweeps lashed out stressing that Ethiopia’s position as the continent’s best carrier remained intact despite the unfortunate incident of March 10.
It is not the first and most likely won’t be the last time that western media portals have attracted the ire of people over their choice of words and style of journalism in sensitive areas."
