Refusing to Hear: Press Coverage of the Chilean Miners
The article examines the traditionally strong public interest on underground human ordeals, exemplified in the October 2010 rescue of 33 Chilean miners who were trapped 2,000 feet underground for 69 days. The event, covered globally by numerous networks, newspapers and magazines, manifested public fascination on stories about people trapped underground, which include, among others, the 1936 rescue of two men trapped in a mine near Moose River.
