    Katrina was far worse when it cam to helping those who needed it
    and no matter how it was spun there lives had full assistance within days

    People are still without power (help) now 4 months later
    In NY Bloomberg is going to buy homes destroyed at "fair value" and let them sit empty

    Sandy victims left out in the cold during arctic blast | Fox News

    The brutal cold snap affecting much of the country is taking a devastating toll on victims of superstorm Sandy, many of whom are camped out in tent cities or living in homes without power, heat or running water.
    Those unable to get proper lodging have hunkered down in their homes without the basic necessities of heat, electricity, or running water.
    “Many families in Union Beach are using space heaters to warm upstairs,” said Jeanette Van Houten, a resident from the small New Jersey town that was among the hardest-hit communities. “There’s people with no heat, no electric, but they are staying in the house because it’s better than having to deal with FEMA and having to leave hotels every two weeks.
    “There are families who have chosen to stay in their homes just to have some sort of normalcy,” she added.

    Two questions:
    One, where do you get the idea that "main stream media ignores" Sandy? I've seen/heard three news programs in the last two days (NBC, CBS and NPR) and all three of them had Sandy stories.

    And Two: how do you figure to claim main stream media is "ignoring" the story -- and then link directly to one?

    - and just a p.s. about Katrinites having "full assistance within days" -- we weren't even allowed into the city until October, and I guarantee you when we got there, there was no power to be seen, not even traffic lights. It took a lot longer than "within days". Matter of fact the entire city had to throw out our refrigerators since they had been sitting in the heat for months. Just some perspective.

    It's because the media gives Obammy a by on it. If a conservative was in office they'd be screaming to high heaven, showing the poor, suffering children and demanding his head.

    Obama, of course, can do no wrong, so it's not important.

    I hope those people get all the help they need. I have family up there in Queens and they've been volunteering non-stop for weeks now. They've run out of supplies many times at the shelters they've been working at don't know why people are still short on power.

    The hell it ain't. NewsCorp is the second-largest media group in the world.

    Of course they were suffering long before yesterday, since the storm itself. I don't get how you're missing the news on them. Every media I've seen (I forgot newspaper) has been talking about it. So what's with "ignores"?

    Fox is covering it; so is everyone else. ...And?
    And again, your Katrina comparison is a false equivalence. It didn't have the cold factor, but it also wasn't "within days". "Within days", 80% of New Orleans was under water.

    Didn't think this through real deep, didja?

    hmmmm
    see if you can find any article on these events as we did with Katrina? how about any from the "main stream media" before 11/06/12?
    except of course NJ gov CC thanking BHO for all he had done
    And if you think Fox is part of the
    NBC
    CBS
    CNN
    CNBC
    ABC
    Etc
    post
    Times
    The weather channel
    media, then that is fine with me

    I was under the impression that all was well

    Unlike Katrina with all the issues such as these being reported daily, I would have to agree with you?

    of course the blaze is main stream media

    Umm... I'm not the one who claimed it was being "ignored" by the MSM, and then proceeded to quote the MSM not-ignoring it. You'll have to prove a negative based on -- well, based on nothing. Rotsa ruck with that.

    All of the stories I've seen/heard/read on Sandy this week have been from your list, plus USA Today -- including the same story in your Fox link. Now if you're spending all your time with your nose up Fox Noise's ass (just a guess), then of course your going to miss everybody else's stories, aren't you?

    But ostriching them away doesn't make them not exist. They're out there if you want 'em.

    Kind of makes you wonder why the Senate is waiting until late Monday to vote on the aid package, it's scheduled for 5:30 pm.
