I'll answer that. Media makes those decisions basked on what they think is the audience. Why are the murdered blonde college students getting 10x more press when I can produce lists of missing minorities? Paul Weiland was much older news and people have a short attention span.
Why won't the hateful righties admit the decision to release Griner was Putin's not Bidens. They would rather go with their made up narrative and Putin knows they will do this. Made sense to bring Griner home given the choice.
Yeah I suppose, but I don't think Whelan's case ever got much media attention even when it was new.
I also wonder about the lopsidedness of the transaction. TBH, I'm a bit pissed at Griner for bringing weed into a foerign country which is a hostile dictatorship. I don't believe her for a second when she says it was an accident. I wouldn't believe anyone using that excuse/defense. I'm glad she's home, but it makes me queasy who we had to let out to get it done.
