I noted that apart from CNN, with its strong Middle Eastern links plus Pravda, that mainstream media sources were not reporting on the MERS-CoV killer virus. BUT, why?
My earlier blogs prompted some lively discussion on Twitter. I also searched Twitter on the #MERS tag. I was also recommended to check Goggle News for my sources. Here’s a link to the Google News search on the MERS-CoV virus:
I still question why the MERS-CoV killer virus is not receiving more mainstream media attention?
