Bird flu is passé — onto the next media scare
Posted by Jon Sanders at 2:45 PM Brace yourselves, folks. Don't know if you've heard this, but it's late July, soon to be August, and the AP reports that temperatures are ... in the 90's and some 100's! It's not too soon to panic!
I could be wrong that "HEAT WAVE!" is the new media scare à la "BIRD FLU!"
It could be more in line with the "offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements," "[FILL IN ALARMIST AND ARMAGEDDONIST FACTOID HERE]," and "over-representation of factual presentations" inclination toward global-warming fearmongering.
