    Blood is blood

     
    There is a clear case of media bias on CNN's reporting of global violence. When I watch CNN I find that there are constant updates of the violence in Syria, but no mention of the violence in northern Nigeria. Are the civilians being killed in Syria more important than those in Nigeria? The Islamic Militant group Boko Haram orchestrated an orgy of gross violence across the north, targeting the christians and security officials. This month alone, they have murdered close to 300 innocent Nigerians and close to 1000 since the attacks began in 2009. Yet most of this goes unreported by your network. This lack of reporting contributes to the ignorance of the North American populace, as pertains to global issues. Please be fair in your coverage of conflict, we are all the same, African, Arab, or American fighting for what is right. Violence is violence, blood is blood.
