Jon Stewart in the clip above
shows the lack of proportionality by a traditional media gone awry. They
hyperventilated about the Eric Cantor loss as if it would mark some
epic change in American life. Yet they shrugged off the shooting at the high school. While they covered it to some extent, the coverage was nowhere near the gravity of the situation.
School shootings and mass shootings in America are on the rise.
The media treats each of these shootings as spectators to a rating
boost. Jon Stewart shows a media out of step with reality in graphic terms.
