Fourteen Years Ago Today

Lawhawk was reminded by a commenter and reminded me (via Michelle Malkin) what anniversary is marked today. Anyone remember? I didn't. Follow the links (see the update) and let me know if you were as shocked as I was to realize it had already been fourteen years. It is not surprising that this anniversary did not receive more attention considering how many have already forgotten September 11.

Kim adds: Is anyone really all that surprised that the MSM hasn't bothered to remind anyone of this anniversary? I just checked Google News at 2:10pm and there's nothing to commemorate the event that would be a foreshadowing of what was to come eight years later.

You know, the more words you use in a google search, the narrower your results will be. Try this one. It's mostly "Today in History" pieces which don't exclusively focus on the '93 bombing, but you certainly find a lot more news sources mentioning it, like say, this one.

Thanks, Mantis. Even your search, which was a better one, still illustrates how muted the coverage is.

Seems like longer than 14 years to me. Even 9/11 seems like 10 years.

What I do remember about 9/11 is the brief two week period where we weren't sloshing hate all over each other.

I think it was typo exasperated by my usual lack of proofreading comments, but if anyone knows of the sub-conscience meaning of the letter "R", please let me know (maybe it means that I have a dick so big that I lean against it?).

Dave:

Why would the media call attention to something that would illustrate that we have had a problem on our hands since before GW got into office? that won't score points for them over at the DNC, so they have no personal interest in doing it. It is quite apparent by ratings and circulation numbers etc that the media really has no interest in viewers, or providing what people want to watch, see and hear, but rather an interest in promoting an agenda.

It's pretty obvious that the media does NOT report certain things, or does NOT reflect on things that are relevant, while they DO reflecti on things that are irrellevant (ex: Hurricane Katrina, which can never be prevented, while terrorism CAN be stopped). It can all be attributed to promotion of an agenda, and working on what they think is their self-interest. Funny how the layoffs and "restructuring" due to their poor numbers in the media have caused many of them to lose jobs because many people are sick of hearing their biased and self-serving opinions instead of actual reporting.
