Amazing graphic from Pew Research:
Advocates (even including myself, I'm embarrassed to say now) have in the past blamed the media for not rasing the global warming question -- repeat, question -- when it comes to vast storm disasters, such as Typhoon Haiyan.
Look at that graphic and you realize that in the American media today, coverage is analysis. And in most cases, with notables such as NPR and the NY Times excepted, that's what you get -- the scope of the damage, and pictures, with long-range causes left undiscussed.
And the amount of coverage is politcial. even in cases of disaster, sadly.
Looking at you, Fox News.
(Or actually -- not.)
