so far up to 290+ dead and about 500 injured.
the media coverage, mostly the differences in how the coverage is approached vs. anti-trump or other narratives (NZ shooting etc.), is very interesting.
even in this article i am noticing that despite the advance notice and the clear culpability of a certain faith or idealogy, that the media is focusing more on actors or parties confirmed to NOT be involved in this… what i mean is that many pieces are sharing the story of the long-ended civil war and implicating the Tamil Tigers and buddhists when it is all but confirmed that this was neither of those groups.
i guess we didnt need any further confirmation bias but my goodness if this whole thing doesnt make you shake your head.
it seems such a disservice to the victims and such an obvious affront to ‘journalism’ to alter the narrative in this way.
