******it's such arrogant and anecdotal horse shit to say this storm was over-hyped/fake news/over blown
******
******how on earth can any half human caring individual say such a stupid thing?
******
******Really?
******
******have you not observed the devastation this storm caused?
******
******totally destroyed islands - ruined, wiped out?
******
******drop your fucking ego for a split second....
******
******is your joy that it veered further than expected into Cuba to help downgrade Irma to a category 3 and then went slightly farther west of Florida?
******
******they get hit harder so you don't?
******
******and all you can say is - fake news/over blown/hyped
******
******grow up and educate yourself.
******
******christ almighty
******
******this storm has caused devastation and life altering changes to thousands on people...and killed others
******
******just because your little miniscule/provincial world is ok...
******
******fuck me.

*****I agree. I've held off from saying anything because I know I'll be skewered for it. People lost everything. People died. People's lives are in ruins.
*****
*****But for the ones here who were able to party through it and weren't totally devastated are ok with saying "it's all MSM hype. No big deal."
*****
*****Reminds me of the right-wing playbook motto "I got mine so screw you." No empathy whatsoever. It's disturbing that this is what we've come to as a country.
*****
*****On a side note Mexico has withdrawn its pledge of help after our illustrious leader has failed to acknowledge or send a message of support after their tragic earthquake. This is how we look to the rest of the world now. "Screw you. We're 'muricans! 'Murica first!"
*****
****
****
****Do you think any of those casualties may have been caused due to inaccurate media reporting?
****
***
***what an incredibly ignorant comment
**
**
**
**It's NOT ignorant at all. It's a perfectly legitimate question
**which you apparently can't honestly answer.
**
**Creating panic and sensationalism is the media's game and you are ignorant if you think that there weren't any accidents or casualties as a result of the panic that ensued over the media's
**erroneous reporting.
**
**Irresponsible journalism is rampant in this country and elsewhere
**MSM outlets for the most part are no better than supermarket tabloids now. It's all about where they can find sensationalism and if they can't find it, they create sensationalism.
**
**Even our soldiers overseas have suffered casualties because
**of irresponsible reporting.

*"Gov. Scott Warns Anyone in Irma Evacuation Zone: 'You've Got to Get Out Now'"
*
*Was Fox News irresponsible for reporting the direct words of the Governor of the state? Was every news outlet irresponsible for reporting the same?
*
*Why do you blame the media here? Why not blame NOAA? Why not blame the Republican governor for following the NOAA?
*
*Please explain the 'erroneous reporting' you think happened here and show me just one single example of a casualty caused by it.

Good luck with that!

and kudos for still trying to have a decent fact-based intelligent communication with him!
