Agreed VA. I also think it's bullshit to call them heroes for trying out the new medicine. I've heard different rates for fatalities - up to 90%, so trying something that has a chance for poor side effects doesn't sound that bad.

They are heroes because they risked themselves to help others. With a disease so often fatal it seems reasonable to take a chance with a cure, but why were the first people treated white Americans? Are their lives more valuable and worth saving? Perhaps they fact that they were willing to travel halfway across the world to help people and expose themselves truly does make them more valuable than the average Joe. They are braver than I am.

I am personally awestruck that they have deliberately brought two people with Ebola to the US. While they are taking precautions out the yin yang, I would much rather they send doctors to Africa.

Ebola is some scary stuff. Watch those sensational news bits then spend 2 minutes in google images to put a nice cherry on top for the panic prone.

If someone else does get it then there will be riots in the street.

Watching CNN this morning, an interview with former NYC Mayor Bloomberg was asked in typical news speak about the spread of Ebola to the US because of the 2 American aide workers infected. Bloomberg's response was that the people and places know what they are doing and that the media is sensationalizing. This sensationalizing is just the media trying to cause panic here in the US and unfortunately he is so right. Just like the old adage in the newspaper business "If it Bleeds, It LEADS". So today they make the stupidest things bleed to make a story.

You have to remember that until the Limbaugh era, there was a law in place requiring television media outlets to present BOTH positions of a story. Newspapers were never required to do so. that's why you would see two or more major newspapers in any given city.

So much for fair and balanced.

Yes. The other problem is that the news seems to also push political agenda's disguised as news and sensationalism.

BLT: That is the new normal it seems. Hyperbole and sensationalism are what sells. I tend to go to the BBC (British Broadcasting) for something a bit toned down.

I absolutely hate the way TV daily news has evolved over the years from giving relevant information to sensationalizing stories and making everything a mini-series. Ebola is the latest hot topic...WTF...this is not just on TV. Sites like the Huffington Post put up screaming headlines only for you to go to the link and there is little or nothing to support the headline.
