First of all, my sympathy to the families and friends of the three people who died running the Freep Marathon yesterday. Very tragic.
Has anyone else noticed the muted coverage the tragedy has received in the Freep today? I'm at a loss to imagine any circumstance in which three participants in some event perished where less print coverage would have occured. Could it have to do with the Freep's sponsorship association with the marathon? It get's huge coverage in the days leading up to the event. Yet when something negative (and quite tragic) is associated with the event, it gets the quiet treatment.
And the print media wonders why it has sustained such a loss of credibility.
