Strange indeed, and even stranger since you have lots of people with Norwegian ancestry (?).
A lot of us in U.S. tune in to BBC radio to find out what is going on, outside and even inside of U.S.
It is not encouraged by U.S. media FRANCHISES, who generally control airwaves, because they are not selling ads on it... or are they/we?
I do admit feeling desensitized by "berserk gunman" news stories because it happens here (U.S.) so damn often. Images and words from innocent bystanders you'd posted however, are moving. Reading World Issues threads by regular folks here on the forum is easier for me to personally relate to than available "national" news media. I guess I lost faith in their integrity.
