Missing Persons: Race Isn’t The Factor; It’s Media-Savvy Families

MSNBC has “never, ever, ever turned down a story based on race or any of those factors,” vice president Mark Effron tells the Los Angeles Times in a story titled “Not Only Natalee Is Missing.”

“Effron said the stories of missing women typically bubble up from local network affiliates who are covering the stories based on the public outcry they generate in their home communities.” He says: “It’s not like there’s a kind of cabal where MSNBC and CNN and Fox get together and say, ‘Boy, this is a good one. That’s not a good one.’ Usually, there’s an involved family that tends to be sophisticated in how to use the media.”
