An American Tourist Kidnapped in Uganda | The Daily Show

Published by Darron Toy on



so for those who don't know there's a story of an American woman who was on a safari in Uganda and she was kidnapped right her and her guide were kidnapped and then there was a ransom for $500,000 I believe and I am if I understand your question what you're saying is why does it seem like the news he has only talking about the American woman who was kidnapped and not so much about the guide and I'll be honest with you it that's just story telling you tell a story from the point that people will most connect with the story so if you say to an American audience a Ugandan man was kidnapped in Uganda and is still in Uganda you like and the story is no I can see how people just it's hard to get people to care but but when you go an American woman was kidnapped people like oh I'm American that could be me because that's I don't know if you've noticed that's something that people love doing whenever there's a tragedy people always would like to make it seem like that could have be hold people like like literally there's like a like when like when there was a plane one of the planes that crashed and then someone was like ah I was thinking of flying to this yo Pia i'ma give it that that doesn't mean you were any closer to remember we were planning that trip to Ethiopia but that could have been me as like no that's not how it works it so I genuinely think that's why they tell the story that way because it's it's it's hard to make people care because look the honest truth is human human beings have a finite amount of how many things we can care about otherwise you just become desensitized and there's someone being kidnapped somewhere everywhere in the world but it's more of a story when it's an American woman kidnapped in Uganda it's like whoa what you know what is this thing so but I heard she was released now they paid the ransom that was one funny part is like with the Ugandan authorities they were like good news we have rescued her and then it's like oh how did you guys do it we paid the ransom to the kidnappers and I was like that's not rescue that you should say I paid the rent of him their agenda like no no no no we have rescued ha ah you see back then we have rescued aha so yeah so I'm glad that she's back and she's safe but I but I think that's what it is when am i coming to Uganda you want me to get kidnapped as well that could have been me

they mention the nationality news cases abroad for relatives to check on family members travelling there. Same story with tragedies. You don't have to worry about your cousin being kidnapped in Uganda if you hear that the kidnapped person was polish

In America if you pay the ransom, the person still usually dies. 😬
