Also, Ramis was very sick and publicly known to not be in very good shape.

Hoffman was a complete shock. Many didn't even know about his drug troubles.

Harold Ramis, a comedic genius with 40+ years of contributions to the arts who was highly regarded as a very humble and personable human being, passed away on Monday. This man died a very slow, agonizing death over the last few years of his life and became unable to walk due to the progression of the disease that he had acquired. THAT is a tragedy. Yet, aside from the 24 hour window that elapsed after his death, nothing about him on the news.

Maybe they had television time set aside as a precautionary measure in the event that another degenerate hero of theirs like Philip Seymour Hoffman would fall victim to his own self-imposed stupidity and destructive behavior. Who knows.



The news is a television show. Those shows are able to exist only if people watch them. Hoffman was infinitely more famous than Ramis. It's called good business.


Exactly , while Ramis was a comic genius he also had been out of the spot life because of his illness . Hoffman on the other hand was a known face to the young movie goers coupled with a born and bred New Yorker who was viewed as a positive in his neighborhood . Kinda like comparing Minong to Milwaukee in regards to media coverage .
