Which explains why, on all of these new Die, Women, Die! series, the victims are pretty young women. Mostly white, too -- just like on the cable news networks.
here's a simple fact: if you show a non-white or male, or god forbid a non-white male, as a victim on the these shows, the ratings drop. if you look at missing person stats and then watch the coverage of missing persons in the media, who are they? most missing people in this country are male, but you couldn't tell that from all the missing blonde college girls that swamp the news. the writers use young white girls as victims because that's the only way anyone would have an iota of sympathy for the victim.
