43 shot, 8 dead in Chicago violence. Why no coverage of this weekly event?

It was a normal Holiday weekend for so many of us. Unfortunately that includes Chicago where at the last count, 43 had been shot and 8 of those fatally including a 15-year-old boy who died on the block where he lived.

This is not unusual for any weekend in Chicago and yet the mainstream media stays predominately silent over this slaughter. I have said it before - if this was going on every weekend in Afghanistan with our men and women in uniform, there would be national marches demanding we pull out immediately.

So why do you think the media ignores this particular violence?
