Look at their drought-hit neighbor Kazakhstan.

What a paradoxical earth ! While huge floods and wild fires are causing great harm to many people in a number of countries all over the globe, the ravaging drought is devastating central Asia..

For several months, the drought has brought misery to Kazakhstani and their livestock. Drastic measures have been enforced by the government to alleviate the dire situation.

But it is not in the media..

Why?

Yawn, hardly the only place suffering from drought. The drought on the Colorado River Basin has the potential to affect the water supplies for 40 million people vs a Kazakh population of about 18.7 million. Not to mention most of the winter produce in North America is irrigated with water from the Colorado River. If you enjoy a salad in the winter in North America the greens came from either the Imperial Valley or the valley outside Yuma. But drought elsewhere gets most of the press even as the impact of drought on the lower Colorado River basin is potentially far greater. And, obtw, if the water level behind Hoover Dam gets much lower the powerhouse will have to stop producing, cutting a major source of electricity for the city of Los Angeles. That is a big deal.

Because the media is very selective in what they cover. There are lots of things going on in the world, but only a few places get attention from the legacy corporate "mainstream" media.

And we all know this is because of a liberal bias in the MSM; it has zero to do with the finite amount of time and space the media is dealing with. The media should report on everything that I think it should! Sophomoric, at best.

True, and as some posters here can attest, they just watch a recycling of CNN news and hence their limited perspectives.

Watch--they will come out soon with a retort.

Lol, yeah, I know. Probably something involving "faux news" or the eternal bogeyman "Trump". Unpredictable? Not so much...
