I guess that's what happens when you try to make a generally slow developing story into a 'round the clock special.

False, they're a punishment from God for condoning abortion and homosexuality.

In schu's world the media shouldn't say anything, ensuring that people think it's no big deal, don't prepare, and we end up with thousands of deaths.

in my world the media's coverage is proportional to the strength of the storm and provides actual useful info rather than making news out of false message board reports, Bob in AC getting blown against the side of a storefront to prove that there's wind, and shirtless guys running down the street with a horse head mask on

Re: SE FAQ, LIVEBLOG, & FUUUU SANDY DISCUSSION

when you have 24 hour media coverage, some of it is going to be false or repetitive - it's hard to get information sometimes. glad to see you still watched just to register how overblown it is

'guys two buildings just got destroyed, it's over now, what's the big deal, why'd they cancel college football on saturday' - schu if he hadn't been like 7 years old in 2001

grinding TWC all day and I didn't see any real sensationalist ****, unless you really have beef with Al Roker getting his **** stuffed in NJ.

And Jim Cantore is a boss.
