Ebola Gone

http://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/ebola-virus-outbreak/doctor-tests-positive-ebola-new-york-city-n232801

What happened to Ebola?  It was not more than a few weeks ago that the news media was all Ebola, all the time.  Now suddenly, Ebola has fallen from the news, it's not even mentioned anymore.  Why is that?

Did we find a cure?  Is everyone all better?  Are no more Ebola patients coming to the USA?  I think what's really happened is a couple things.  The media has trouble focusing on more than one thing at a time and after a while something new and interesting comes along and they drop the story of the day and move on to something else.

I also think that Ebola was being handled poorly by the administration.  The constant news stories on Ebola were showing that once again, President Obama was unable to control an emergency, unable to explain what's happening, unable to solve our nations problems.  So better that the story just go away; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
