Absent a burning issue with Spain, not clear what warrants live coverage.

Over 80+% of Mainstream media in the U.S. is owned by Republicans. Their power has been gaining steam since the Reagan Years with HWBush/Cheney getting rid of the Fairness Doctrine. That, and the Citizens United being approved by the USSC.

the U.S. media proves that they can only handle one story at a time. 24 hour news stations that regurgitate the same story all day long. Then they bring in experts and contributors to comment on the story apparently to see how many ways they can report on one story.

God help us if a major celebrity dies - then the entire world comes to a standstill, sometimes for several days. A tabloid mentality in an ever changing and increasingly dangerous world.

America is focused on Roe, Monkeypox, The 1/6 Hearings, and the economy.

46+ dead immigrants found in truck in San Antonio, lots of excitement over J6 and witness, women's rights et al, storms brewing in or near Gulf, and a fight between bluejays and squirrels in my backyard.

If it ain't a Party Of Death (GOP) dog and pony show or a crazy clown circus (Gangreene, BoBo, TFG, etc.), they don't really specialize in the remaining gray area. Ratings, ratings, ratings!

because you seemed to have a problem with that and perhaps you did not understand that I am Canadian. It is not me that is irate. And it was at least an hour and half before the hearings.

I think you should keep your opinions of me to yourself. You want to comment fine but you have no reason to insult me at all, and we all wonder what is wrong, it is these types of attitudes. I was not hysterical or angry when I wrote this OP, so you are way off base in this comment. It is also very misogynistic.
