  • What's the bigger story?

    So, I figured I would ask you guys this question:

    What's the more important news story?

    Ted Cruz leaving Texas for Cancun while the state was in the middle of sub-freezing temperatures and massive power failures?

    Or

    Andrew Cuomo's office hiding nursing home deaths out of fear the DOJ would "Use against us", AND facing accusations of sexual harassment/forcibly kissing aids.

    Why?

    The answer is obvious according the MSM

              oh --- well, nobody died as a result of Ted's nutty absence.

                FWIU he flew right back claiming he was just taking the family or his daughter down there. I suspect his people got him to realize how back it looked.

                  I'm sure their audience would rather hear them criticize Ted Cruz than talk about Cuomo's scandals.

                  The profit motive might have had something to do with their decisions.

                    Yeah, it was just dumb.

                      But, which do you think is the bigger news story?

                        So, clarify please --- which one WAS, or which one should have been?

                          Both of those stories describe bad behavior and dishonesty.
                          Have either of them offered a real apology?

                          The size of news stories is governed by what the public wants to hear. A few days ago it was Tiger Woods' accident, 24/7.

                            Yeah, but only one of them resulted in a whole bunch of deaths and a pack of lies.

                              By what standard?

                              I don't think either of them is particularly important here in California.
