Talking Points:

  • Background: Weather Channel reporter leaning into the wind while two dudes stroll past. Reporters kneeling in water to make it look deeper during hurricane IKE. Video
  • Fox News reporting that 500 million people were without power in North Carolina.
  • The sensationalism of weather. Find and focus on the drama. Drum it up if need be.
  • The politicization of weather. Conservatives cause bad weather.
  • The cost, causes us to lose confidence in all of the true reporting.
