“Two Young Women Missing, Two Different Levels In Media “

By Brian 

MSNBC didn’t have time to cover Stepha Henry‘s dissapearance yesteday, but Kerry Sanders did a piece about her on Today this morning. And it dealt with the media angle:

“There’s been media coverage, but not the type of wall-to-wall, nationwide attention that 18-year-old Kelsey Smith received,” Sanders said. “Smith is the white Kansas teen who was abducted and murdered after she left a Target store. Two young women missing, two different levels in media coverage.”

A Miami police spokeperson (the same one who was bumped from MSNBC yesterday) said: “I would hate to think — I would hate to think that the color of anybody’s skin would make an impact on whether or not they got media coverage.”
