Maybe it's me but these cnn articles seem almost jealous of his new aquired fame.
First there is this article
Skydiver lands safely after historic jump
Okay, nothing wrong with this article, pretty straightforward. But then I saw this article:
How claustrophobia Almost Stopped a Sky Diver
The article says how "Fearless Felix" almost chickened out because his suit was restrictive. I thought that was a bit condescending, he did the jump,
didn't he? Maybe if someone had the guts to do the same, then they could nitpick about before jump fears. But that wasn't too bad. Then there was this
After spacejump, what's the next big stunt?
Already they seemed anxious for the next big thing, as if they desperately need a distraction from this big stunt.
And then this article, which seems really low even for CNN's standards:
Who Should Play Felix Baumgartner in a Movie?
Forget that the "movie" is already online as the real jump, don't worry that no one but CNN is even contemplating a movie, we need to know who will
play Felix! While many of the comments say "Felix should play himself, duh", CNN is wondering if David Beckham or Jonathon Rhys Meyers should play
Felix, or maybe Ryan Reynolds. I mean anything to distract from the actual man and the actual jump, right?
