i was just watching cnn and i almost vomited at the over hype of its "reporters".
they are more focused on complaining about citizens walking about their daily routine and ruining their "dramatic" end of world shots, than reporting the storm.
it was so pathetic it was bordering on really bad acting.
one shot had this reporter screaming into her mic about these super dangerous conditions while the camera panned to about 4 inch waves while a jogger in shorts ran by.
it was laughable. and it seems that they are actually getting mad that people aren't obeying their commands and warnings to stay inside.
cnn is trying its hardest to manipulate reality by filming in empty parking lots and getting upset when a car rolls by contradicting their b.s.
this is the free world. prime example of media manipulation and instilling fear and panic into the population by not reporting the facts and the tone of it's "reporters".
and an exercise in obedience. you're officially done. you are no longer free to think or act on your own. you must obey.

Ehh, im sitting here in NYC still waiting for the "most dangerous storm of our lives", , if you had to live through hurricane gilbert, you would scoff at this baby, if your close to the coast of course your gonna get flooded out, i think ill go roll up some homegrown and watch the wind beat these trees silly. F that evacuation noise.
I agree. They are REALLY shoving the severity of this storm down our throats. I don't get into all the weather conspiracy usually, but I have defiantly been thinking about it w/ regards to Sandy.
ETA: If this storm turns out to be nothing out of the norm I won't be surprised, but I will be upset. Not about it not being a bad storm, I'm sick of the crying wolf. That's why you end up with large numbers of people (when they should evacuate) ignoring warnings and then suffering the consequences! People hear the same BS and when it's an actual event, they don't believe it!!
I have watched a lot of tv and weather reports in my day, and I was almost terrified myself today. It was the language they were using. They made it seem like this is going to be it for the east coast...they said every zing word and phrase except 'biblical proportions'....I don't think anyone can deny that it's a really bad storm, and things are being destroyed...and unfortunately, loss of life. It very well still may be and we have it all wrong, but i sure hope not.

Beezz, you're normally a sensible guy but this time I have to wonder what you're thinking. I'm just as jaded by the media as anyone here but if you watch the weather as I do and pay attention to the reports coming in then you would know this storm isn't playing around.
If it "hyped" that sure is better than leading folks to believe they will be fine when they're actually in the path of destruction bearing down on them.
Do I trust the MSM? No -
But in this case they have no reason to lie, in fact it helps their credibility to accurately predict what is coming.
