Is Jahessye Shockely's Disappearance Worthy of National Media Attention? Her Family Seems to Think So
Jahessey Shockley's been missing for nearly nine days, and there hasn't been a peep about her disappearance in the national media -- and her family wants to know why.
We've been a little curious ourselves, considering that cable news channels have been dwelling on the disappearance of Lisa Irwin, a 10-month-old Kansas City girl who disappeared from her home on October 4.
"I want the national media to pick it up. I won't stop until they do. I don't know why it's not national now," Shirley Johnson, Jahessye grandmother, tells a local TV news station. "They have that ability to send out to other states. They have that ability to make sure someone from across the nation [knows] what is going on."
If you ask us, she's got a point. In fact, we nearly penned a post yesterday under the headline "Attention, America: Lisa Irwin Isn't the Only Missing Child Right Now."
We want to know what you think, though: is Shockley's disappearance worthy of national media coverage?
