I have set my Gmail Web Clips to give me interesting travel news from a wide variety of sources. One of these sources is MSNBC. Also, please note I’m currently living in France. So when I see a Web Clip that states, “60 crew have swine flu on cruise ship off France” and the source is MSNBC.com, you can be damn sure I clicked on it.
And what is the headline I see on the news page?
Shame on you, MSNBC. And shame on the press at large for using consistently inflammatory language in reporting on this pandemic.
That is all.
