Here a few simple facts for the media.
– Often it is very cold in Winter.
– It is not uncommon for there to be snow in Winter.
So, now that I’ve shared these simple facts about Winter, maybe there will be a miracle and the news media will stop acting as though the Apocalypse is coming every other week just because it’s cold or it’s snowing.
Maybe I’m not remembering it correctly but when I was growing up on the East Coast it took a very serious weather event to actually occur before the media reported it.
And, usually it was just a report in passing about a snow storm that had stalled over a major city. I don’t remember the media going on about cold Winter temperatures.
I guess the media figures they can scare people into watching or reading by using a lot of crazy hyperbole and hyping up even the more mild Winter weather events.
Does the media over-coverage of Winter weather annoy you too?
