So there seems to be a constant condemnation on ATS of the MSM about how it's ramping up the fear and hype for Hurricane Irene, fair enough too I suppose but I can also see why they would hype it up so much...apart from being the media and that's what they do, they also feel that the average person is very complacent and need a bit of a push to be prepared.
Anyway, I digress, the reason for this post is because whilst a lot of members of ATS condemn this fear mongering from the MSM, many will then go and get drawn in by the same sort of thing from a non MSM source...GFL anybody? Elenin? Nibiru? Earthquake predictions?
I think many need to have a long hard look at themselves.
Anyway..just an observation.
