US Television News Barely Mentions Equatorial Guinea Explosion

Feature Charticle

The timeline below shows the total number of mentions of the massive explosion in Equatorial Guinea this past weekend in which 98 people have been confirmed killed and another 615 injured. Despite this casuality count, US television news channels have barely mentioned the disaster, with just 2 mentions each on MSNBC and Fox News and surprisingly zero mentions on CNN to date, even while Al Jazeera, DW and BBC News have covered it, though even Al Jazeera has mentioned it less than 200 times.
