we're not afraid

After the London bombing, a friend and I were talking about the fact that CNN spent a ton of time breathlessly reporting about the deployment of bomb-sniffing dogs on New York and DC subways. My take was that they felt compelled to talk about the London bombing but there just wasn't much new info coming out of London, so they had to stretch. She was less charitable: she thought they were so arrogant as to think that people in the U.S. would rather hear about non-news in this country than real news overseas.

In either case, and in sharp contrast to the major networks' news coverage, I offer this link to We're Not Afraid, courtesy of Smart Mobs. Their favorite submissions page is definitely worth a look.
