How soon until the media freaks???

I looked at Weather Underground's tropics page this morning and noticed that a tropcial depression is off the coast of North Carolina.

So, how long will it be before CNN, FOX News, and the rest will be providing 24-hour coverage of "the next Katrina?"

News today isn't about news, it's about hype. Making things sound worse than they are.

When Rita was approaching someone on one of the networks said something to the effect of "Beaumont will be ground zero for Rita," totally freaking out a friend of mine in St. Louis and keeping my cell phone busy while I was trying to sleep after that hellatious evacuation experience.
