350 Blasts · 2005-08-22

This one is particularly interesting. Siggi Becker comes up with it today. Imagine an amount of no less than 350 small bombs explode in between one hour in a country with a population of 144 million. The explosive devices were designed to injure rather then to kill. They leave 2 people dead and more then 150 injured. Now, imagine this incident does not make it to the news at all.

Well, true. Four days ago in Bangladesh the above mentioned happened and noone over here noticed. No ancor man reported. No newspaper commented. Siggi now asks what mechanisms actually aggregate our news. Since not even the often hyped autonome blog scene covers this story significantly, nor does it comment on it.
