    It's a shame the woman died through no fault of her own.

    However, this story shows the extent to which the news media's need for mouse-clicks distorts the news.

    The real news story here is that an innocent woman was killed by a crossfire between rival criminal gangs in East LA. The real story is what is being done, or not being done, to address rampant violence in East LA. It's not like this is a new problem -- in LA, or Chicago, or Washington, DC, or Detroit, or many, many other places.

    But Uber equals clicks. And clicks are more important than facts, or news, or what is really important. So, with nothing more than an apparent Uber logo on a window, UBER becomes the story. That's pure bull****.

    This is what "journalism" has deteriorated into: a quest for clicks.

    Had this been a taxi customer?

    Wouldn't have made national news...

    I agree with both of you.
