Steve Sobel Posted over 3 years ago Which relevant/important events currently unfolding around the world are being ignored by the media? Why are they relevant? I found myself asking this question this morning when all the news coverage was focused on Charlie Sheen rather than the American deficit crisis, revolution in the Middle East and issues of incredible consequence breaking around the globe. One issue being ignored that had tremendous consequences to everyone on earth is the ignored story about the melting of the polar ice caps. This is something that must be dealt with but something that is getting ignored in a culture that is so focused on celebrity and issues that are consequential.
