… where three innocent people and the shooter died, and five others were injured is barely causing a news ripple elsewhere. currently has the story way down at its home page in roughly the 22nd spot.

A short headline is about 80 percent of the way down the New York Times home page.

Drudge has nothing.

  1. To be blunt, and not saying I agree with this, the shooting was not “sexy” enough. Too few victims to qualify as a mass shooting, and therefore it’s not enough to differentiate it from a typical day in Chicago, and thus the minimum coverage. Again, not saying that view is right or wrong.

  2. Could be, zf. My theory is that there is a lot about the perp the press doesn’t want us to know. You can fill in the blanks.

  3. You have a point there, that is certainly a big possibility as well!
