This comes from a very interesting conversation I had in a class. There is no more outrage with events on the news. We see tragic events that have taken place or natural disasters that create a tremendous amount of damage. We see these events that take place get major attention for 3 days at the most and after that no one seems to care. Before there use to be more outrage the viewers demanded more news on those tragic events.
For instance the las vegas shooting was a very tragic event that toke place it got major attention but a few days later you don’t really hear anything about it. As soon as something more important or viral comes along those events lose attention. For example right now all major news have been pushed aside due to the Weinstein allegations that have been made.
There have been numerous hurricanes that have occurred back to back that left a tremendous amount of devastation and death. Once the hurricanes stopped and things start to set to a norm no one hears about how the people are doing and what is being done to restore the cities. We are currently living in a world that simply does not care about all the devastation occurring. People no longer care about the tragic events taking place. If I does not involve someone personally they have zero interest in what is occurring.
