Back in March, we noted that anywhere from 120 to 280 Christians had been slaughtered by Islamic militias in Nigeria since Feb. 9, and ABC, CBS and NBC offered nothing. They might argue, and certainly some have, that they just don’t have the resources to cover this kind of event. They’ll tell us that once upon a time, the networks operated a series of international bureaus, with teams of reporters located in strategic areas around the globe, but that time has passed.
But that’s poppycock. Sure, those bureaus simply no longer exist today. Or, if they do, they’re shells. But that’s not a reality thrust on them; it’s one they’ve chosen. If they were to want to cover these horrors, they would apply the necessary resources. And if somehow that were a possibility, they could make arrangements with international news agencies to carry their footage. It’s done all the time — when they want to.– FoxNews
