Why is the news covering the mass shootings so much more after the 2nd one then they were Saturday night with just the one?

After the one shooting only 1/3 of the NBC Nightly News broadcast was devoted to it. Not even a top story recap at the end of the broadcast. Then Sunday Night it was the one and only story with no "other news".

Why was 20 dead only a medium size story and 29 dead is a huge story? Shouldn't both be major stories?

    A 'disturbance in the force' has obviously been detected and they fear where the next ones might turn up?

    They used to put it down to Summer madness.

    shootings are common..............but Double Headers are rare!

    and it's a well known fact.........the MORE dead you can claim, the more airtime the story gets.

    20 dead.........was like........Meh...........but 29 dead *combined* --- pushed it to that next level.
