    One of the strangest news developments of our time is the way the media now focus for days, if not weeks, 24/7, on a single event and its ramifications.

If no other calamitous or eye-catching event comes along (“‘Unimaginable’: Toddler’s body recovered by divers after alligator attack at Disney resort"), it could, top the news, in all its micro-ramifications and repetitions, for three or four weeks. Such stories -- especially mass killings, especially those with an aura of terrorism about them -- are particularly easy for strapped, often downsizing news outfits to cover. They are, in a sense, pre-packaged.
