Why is the Media Ignoring Darfur?

This excellent post on the Coallition for Darfur examines the horrible job major media outlets are doing in their coverage of the genocide in Darfur. They can find limitless time to cover Martha Stewart, but can't spare the airtime or column inches to cover the crimes and tragedies happening in Sudan. We have to demand better.

UPDATE: One member of the media who has done a superb job of covering the crises in Darfur is Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times. Read his column in today's paper.
