We, the people of Tampa, are sick of hearing about Caylee Anthony 24/7.  You two, and Bay News 9, give it a rest and focus fore on Lex Salisbury or do a story focusing on how the media tends to ignore whenver a minority child disappears and only freaks out when a white child disappears.

A kid is murdered in cold blood and you want to debate racism?

This is a big story, especially in Tampa, because of it's close proximity to Orlando. It's also big because of the circumstances involved.

People, even those not in the Tampa/Orlando area, seem to be morbidly obsessed with these Jean Benoit cases. That's why Jack Harris talks about it.

I honestly don't understand it either.  All racism aside, it's odd to me that some particular crimes end up becoming a national obsession, while thousands of other deaths fly under the radar

Makes no sense to me either. Why some stories but not others?

Stranger kills a kid-pg 3 of the local section.
Dad kills his own child-Pg 1 Local section, might get a paragraph nationally.
Mom kills her own kid-Front page headline locally, full story nationally.
Mom kills her own kid, hides body, and makes up story about kidnapping/missing child- CNN, USA Today, Front page news everywhere.
