Although the eXile’s new Lo-Kontent format prevents us from elaborating,
we are forced to note: a news story broke last week which gave the
press a chance to reveal itself at its absolute ugliest. It wasn’t
just that the whole world freaked out and demanded front-page news
for more than a full week when 100 rich Germans died in a freak
accident on the Concorde—and this after twice as many penniless
Filipinos died in a landfill slide, of all things, and barely cracked
the “In Brief” sections of most Western dailies for even one day.
