Letter: News media ‘cried wolf’ on blizzard reporting

From: Noel Taylor


One of Aesop’s fables is “The Boy Who Cried Wolf.” This week’s public relations blitz about the blizzard “of historical proportions” that didn’t happen is typical of our drama-hungry news media. Perhaps they should be reading fables rather than writing them. I wonder how they will spin the non-response of the public they make jaded to a real crisis, should one ever occur, since we already know that the talking heads won’t accept responsibility for that inevitable outcome.
