So much very important news, notably worldly suffering and tragedy, has been overridden and omitted to make available as much newsprint and broadcast-time as possible for the passing of Queen Elizabeth.

Every time I turned to Canada's national CBC news channel, day or night, it was various forms of this.
A renowned newsman once justly implicated the Western world's news coverage and consuming callousness and imbalance: “A hundred Pakistanis going off a mountain in a bus make less of a story than three Englishmen drowning in the Thames.”
