National Press Thinks Nashville Is Not Important
The national media has ignored the Nashville floods because Tennessee is not in their vision of America:
Allow me to distill all of this chatter into a reality that some of us have known for a long time-that if it doesn't happen in New York, Chicago, Miami or Los Angeles or some other haven of the Left, it isn't news. The reasons for this are not political of course, because most reporters for the major national media outlets live in or near those those places, so for many of them those places are a big part of their personal universe. The things that are important to the people in those locations often seem to color the mainstream media's perception of what should remain news.
