Has anyone else noticed how events in France have disappeared from the news? I Checked the BBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Daily Telegraph, the London Times, Google news, Yahoo news; there are a few articles on the politics and the curfew, but nothing at all on actual events that are going on at this time. I didn't spend a lot of time searching, but you would think something would still be in the headlines somewhere. It is downright eerie. I know France3 was going to stop reporting on the riots to avoid encouraging copycat attacks, but successfully shutting down the world news is a remarkable feat. Like Yezhov, events in France have vanished from the picture.
Update: The news-o-sphere isn't entirely silent: this report has some details. Maybe it is time for the post-mortems to begin, perhaps we will finally begin to discover something substantive about root causes and consequences. I expect it will take many weeks for the muddied waters to clear.
