    I'm sure that some of you have already seen this, but even if you haven't the question remains. Why must people be intentionally misleading when it comes to news, especially when it comes in an immediate safety concern. To me this is just asinine and the so called "reporter" should be seriously reprimanded, if not terminated.

    His form is fantastic. I would venture to say that this isn’t his first time doing this. If the weather channel had any respect for itself and it’s viewers, it should be his last.

    It hurts the public involved. Maybe someone was affected by the lies.

    Big surprise. I don't trust them anymore. It's pretty sad how uncredible they continue to be, yet the first thing most people do is turn the news on. Mind blowing.

    Just think, if they do this with reporting the weather what does the rest or our news look like?

    They are performers in the entertainment industry. Not reporters. Simple.

    Twain can be a bit harsh but apt:

    <<
    It has become a sarcastic proverb that a thing must be true if you saw it in a newspaper. That is the opinion intelligent people have of that lying vehicle in a nutshell. But the trouble is that the stupid people -- who constitute the grand overwhelming majority of this and all other nations -- do believe and are moulded and convinced by what they get out of a newspaper, and there is where the harm lies.

    --Mark Twain
    "License of the Press," speech, March 31, 1873

    Poor Anderson Cooper seems to have lost his legs.

    All this joking aside, I really am happy that the Carolina's have avoided the worse possible outcomes. :dblthumb:
