The flurry of HYPE

The adrenaline junkies in the media can’t go too long without a crisis or a disaster or they start to get the shakes.

Maybe this is why all of the build-up for the “blizzard” that more like “Chicken Little.”

As Connecticut CBS Local reported:

Gary Szatkowski, meteorologist-in-charge at the National Weather Service in Mt. Holly, New Jersey, apologized on Twitter for the snow totals being cut back.

“My deepest apologies to many key decision makers and so many members of the general public,” Szatkowski tweeted. “You made a lot of tough decisions expecting us to get it right, and we didn’t. Once again, I’m sorry.”

Apologizing? I know we all want to do our jobs right, but weather is a bit unpredictable. After all, weathermen are not God.

Essentially Szatkowski is apologizing that a BIG storm didn’t materialize. I would have said, “Be glad I got THAT one wrong!”, then started thanking God for intervening.

Instead this guy is upset people didn’t freeze to death!

I liken this to how Liberals really feel about Obama. They so wish he was a tornado of power for good, but Obama’s not even a dust devil.
