48. I have zero interest in insulting you
Obviously you care deeply about this news, but I don't think you achieve anything by making allegations of a news blackout or cover up while tuning people who point out that the flooding in the midwest (and Obama's response to it) has actually gotten network news coverage.

I'm sorry it upsets you so much that I don't get more worked up about it. I feel bad for the people there, but compared to the people in New Orleans after Katrina, or the people in Burma and China earlier this spring, I just don't think it's that bad.
