This question is about correlating the frequency of disasters with media coverage.
Does it merely seem like there are more disasters now because of global media coverage or are there really more disasters?
I feel that there are more disasters rather than the media coverage. There may be a number of reasons for these disasters such as global warming. Certainly, the world is going to get destroyed someday and its approaching.
This question has been asked for many years by many people. My personal opinion is this: We are aware of more disasters now, than say 100 years ago, because of the media. However, looking at the past 10-20 years, I think there are more disasters now than there used to be. They happen more frequently, and are more devastating.
Well there has been global media coverage for quite a while and we havent seen such an amount of disasters in such a short period ever, so I think there are actually more disasters occurring regardless of media coverage....
Maybe the end is nigh...
As a child, I heard my elders ask this VERY thing...............
Historical records tell us that "events" are happening at a faster rate, as is crime.........
The media keeps these events in front of our faces.
There was a time........when the townspeople would ban together and seek justice for a wronged individual...........this now, rarely happens.
Infact the rate of natural and man made disasters has increased manifold for global warming, human greed and other reasons.
I feel like it's the same amount of disasters, but we're more in-tune, obviously, with the ones going on around us compared with 100+ years ago.

If the killer Van Der Sloot was an unattractive black man that killed two unattractive black women, would he still get the same amount of media coverage? Why?
