bethefoodoflove said: people will still very likely die, and there will still be a large amount of damage. making light of that fact is a bit disrespectful to all potential suffering caused by the storm, don’t you think?
» SFB says: It’s not meant as “making light” of a network’s coverage to point out that while something is serious, it’s better to take a more sobering approach. I mean this as no disrespect to people whose lives are in danger (I’m in DC myself, so I’m going to feel some of this), but at the same time, a calmer, non-sensationalized approach could help save lives. The Weather Channel is the last network that should take cues from the CNN of recent times, where every story is “BREAKING NEWS,” in all-caps. — Ernie @ SFB
