Event cancellations and the media, an example of hidden bias

Or maybe lazy journalism.
In San Antonio TX a number of large events have been cancelled due to COVID, that's a good thing. The way it is reported is what's bad below is the headline from KSAT a local news station in TX
As more conventions cancel, San Antonio loses out on $21 million in economic impact
Cancellations due to concerns over COVID-19 delta variant, tourism bureau says

What they should be saying is recent cancellations of events due COVID concerns are expected to save hundreds of lives.

Buy expressing the cancellations in terms of monetary loss they are making people see only the bad side of these protective measures.
Its similar to saying "Smoke alarms cost Americans millions of dollars every year"

1. Their concern is money not lives. So what's new? Out of control capitalism.
