The Brute Force Method of Media Censorship

Most media censorship is done by simply ignoring stories of significance. But sometimes news does get out, and that is where the brute force method comes into play. Here's an example:

I'm not a geologist, but this does seem pretty significant. Seismic activity like this is often a harbinger of larger quake soon to come. Shortly after hearing about this, I noticed something peculiar happened. There has been all sorts of media coverage about an impending earthquake in California.

Look at the number of news articles about the impending earthquake in California. There is over 20 times the buzz being generated about a topic Californians have known about for years, compared to the coverage of what is going on off the coast of Oregon, right now! Of course California is going to be hit in the next 30 years. How is that news now? Why right now? Why right after this Oregon story hit the web? I doubt it will lead to much, but I'm just using this as a clear example of what the media does, time and time again.


Less than 2 weeks after posting this, Reno Nevada was hit with a series of quakes that followed a very strange grid pattern.

That was May 2.

10 days later, China was rocked by a gigantic earthquake that killed tens of thousands. Are these events connected? Who knows. The point I'm trying to make is that our knowledge of such connections is completely dependent on our knowledge of the events themselves. And it is awfully hard to even hear about the events in Reno and off the coast of Oregon when the media, out of the blue, for no conceivable reason at all, starts flooding the channels with news stories about a California earthquake in the next 30 years.
