    After 9-11 the shoe bomber seemed like no big deal. It has been so long since we have had an attempted attack on the homeland the media is milking it for all it's worth.
    Democrats never fight back, I mean demint is keeping us from having a TSA chief,why isn't someone making an issue of this? My guess is the
    Obama haters are very upset this attack failed, they would be happy to sacrifice 300 people for political gain IMO.

      you could also argue that back then people were more inclined to focus on the issue since it seemed more likely that this might happen over and over again. I think the main explanation for the difference in coverage it a straightforward media double standard rooted in nearly universal Republican-biased media ownership.

      We have only just begun and none too soon.
