Media personalities love to say that Trump sucks up all the air (news stories) so everything is about him. Its some sort of fiction that they made up (maybe from Fox News where they get alot of thier bull theories) that allows them to ignore important stories. Like thousands of colored people dying in Puerto Rico. Or the Democratic primary when Hillary - and the "Democratic" party - was trying (& succeeding) in suppressing her opponent Bernie Sanders. Whenever media says they can't cover stories of life and death - or political opponents - because of Trump (who they have been giving an extraordinary amount of free advertising since long before he became President), think "cover up" or "convenient fiction for moral cowards". Hurricane Maria is just one such example. While this post shows the southern strategy as used on Puerto Rico with the Trump administrations victims there, it is just a continuation of southern strategy proofs of media enabling racism by the GOP.
Media Natters: Study finds that Hurricane Maria killed thousands more than the government claims. Media need to do better for Puerto Rico. Harvard study finds actual death toll is at least 72 times higher than the official count
There are outliers to this general media behavior which just makes them stand out more;
Media Matters:MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle highlights report that about 5,000 people died in Puerto Rico because of Hurricane Maria The official government death toll is still 64
