Red News/Blue News: on the subject of Ebola, it's not about you, America

Brian Stelter examines differences in the television discussions of quarantines. Plus, CNN International anchor Isha Sesay explains why American media coverage of the Ebola epidemic has her outraged.

Some highlights:

>> "I think that the coverage out of the U.S. on this global health crisis has been wrong-headed. I think there has been disproportionate focus on the handful of cases that have arrived, sprung up in the United States, and not enough focus on the source, the source of this problem, those three worst affected countries of Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia where almost 5,000 people have died."

>> "If you watch the coverage coming out of the United States, you would think the U.S. was under siege. You would think Ebola was just around the corner and was about to be an epidemic in our midst. That is not the case."

>> "I want your viewers to pause and think, what would life be like if the country you lived in was locked down for three whole days? Think about the United States, a lock-down, and everyone in quarantine for three whole days. That happened to my country of Sierra Leone. There was barely any coverage."

    How about a candid discussion regarding the media role in the over-hyped, non-existent Ebola crisis in the U.S.? If you believed the breathless commentators on CNN and other media outlets, the U.S. was about to be overrun with an uncontrollable epidemic. The media certainly played a role in the unnecessary panic that has been created.
