Why does the press focus only on Netflix?

Tons of media coverage about the Netflix services being down on Christmas eve as a result of what looks to be issues with Amazon’s Cloud.

But, I think I only found one article that mentioned “Other sites, including Heroku’s Platform as a Service, were also affected.” This alone probably means hundreds of customers who had apps running on Heroku…

Anyone else wonder who else was affected?

Boundary graphs clearly showed that the problem was affecting multiple customers and yet the media just chose to focus all the attention on Netflix. Seems a little unfair to me.

2013 – the year that we understand that using public cloud does not absolve us of our responsibility to our customers?
