An IED going off in an American city seems newsworthy enough, but compound that with the fact that it was targeting a group like the NAACP, after months of racial tension, and it seems like a story that would draw a lot of attention.
On Wednesday, the story made it briefly on NBC's "Today" show and was mentioned in passing on CNN during a discussion of tension between protesters and police, but beyond that coverage has been limited. (Video via NBC, CNN)
