The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart slaughters cable news for serving up alarm when they should be delivering caution.
I mockingly predicted this sort of nonsense:
Flu sufferers may be wallowing in a pandemic! Grab the children! You’re gonna die!!!”
“Next on Fox, Hear what the CDC is squealing about!”
Writer Cookie offered this one:
“and this little piggy went ACK* BLONK* PFFFT* all the way home”
Vodpod videos no longer available.
There’s a world of difference between cause for concern and cause for alarm. You’d expect pros to know the difference.
