Nope. It's got nothing to do with rocketry. A sensation is a sensation. I mean, look at the ordinary stupid events they talk about, are people really interested in that? Nope. But media can convert any crap into a sensation, if they repeat it enough times. However, here where they have a real sensation, they avoid it.

But they don't avoid successful tests. Hows that for "avoiding rocketry".

Where's your data showing this trend?

It's actually the lack of data that shows the trend. How can I show you the lack of data? There's simply no news about what happened on the national televisions of many countries.

Show no news about explosions against the amount of news about SpaceX successes.

In other words... if the ratio of positive/negative news matches the success/failure rate of SpaceX (and if the content is honest), then the reporting is fair.

Example... what percentage of Falcon 9 rockets have failed? Does the negative news match that percentage?

LOL. You obviously don't understand how reporting works. Otherwise you'd see thousands and thousands reports about successful airplane landings, and no reports about crashes, since they happen really rarely.

But that's exactly the opposite of how media usually works. They report about UNUSUAL things. Not about successfully parked cars, but about car accidents. Not about girls coming home from school and checking their phone, but about girls who got abducted while returning from the school. And so on. Hence, a SpaceX explosion is exactly the kind of news they seek for.

But obviously, political pressure is more important than reporting. After all, can you remember last time you've heard of hundreds of Swedish girls being raped by the immigrants? You can't. Because the media is ordered not to talk about that. And it's happening every day.
