Not sure why this hasn't got the same publicity as when Chelsea 'so called' supporters allegedly racially abused a man in paris.
I'm not sure there's much wisdom in judging actions by the way they're reported in the media.
Indeed, judging the actions themselves by the amount of coverage they receive would be ridiculous as one act of racism is as abhorrent as another. But it is possible speculate as to why one incident would receive more column inches and airtime than another without implying you view one of them as being worse. For example, in this case, the ability to present the video of the Chelsea fans committing the crime would make it more appealing to both the TV networks and papers. Should that be the case? Of course not, but that's the press for you.
1. These were two guys. A whole group of Chelsea fans pushed the man off the train. Chelsea's case was more of a disgrace and made more headlines because you generally don't see 10-15 men pushing a black man off a train, however you more often see 2 people being racist.
