REALLY Bad Reporting Re Travel & Swine Flu

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?

“Crew members test negative for swine flu”

Shame on you, MSNBC. And shame on the press at large for using consistently inflammatory language in reporting on this pandemic.

That is all.
