At 12:05am, just pass midnight on Sunday, I went to Technorati and saw that Cronulla was the top search that hour. I didn’t know what Cronulla was so I clicked on it. Cronulla I found out is a beach in Australia where major race riots broke out on Sunday between Australians and those whom they believed to be Arab immigrants.
Then I went to CNN, then to Fox News, then to MSNBC. Nothing. This huge story, which is at the top of Technorati (which means blogs all over the world are talking about it), but nothing at the major news networks. Unless I missed these stories on their sites, it’s once again a case of the bloggers beating the major networks to the major stories.
