It’s Not Just Me

28 Aug

Perfect Storm of Hype: Politicians, the media and the Hurricane Irene apocalypse that never was – Telegraph Blogs.

Glad to see I’m not the only one who thought the media had gone overboard with their coverage of a category 1 hurricane the brushed the east coast and quickly turned into a tropical storm. To read the coverage and watch the accounts, you would have thought that Irene was going to be the second coming of Katrina (a true “killer” storm).

Sadly, it’s the British papers again giving us the perspective we should be getting from our own media.
