I hate the whole "Place abroad (was attacked/suffered a disaster), $n Americans were (killed/injured)" thing that seems to be a part of every news report regarding attacks and disasters. What, are we incapable of empathizing with them unless other Americans are involved?

@alynna People do pay more attention to an event if "local" people are involved. Even within America you'll often see local news report on a distant event mentioning if someone born in their city was involved.
