Some of my favorite Gawker gripes about how much the Weather Channel magnified this storm in the NY area:

Max Read:

Yes: last year The Weather Channel—which owns Weather.com, Weather Underground, and a host of other weather-related sites—announced it would begin naming winter storms...

The truth is there is very little attempt being made to hide the fact that this is a money play. In case the inclusion of "Draco" and "Nemo" (just some Greek and Roman names, nothing to do with any recent children's movies, don't worry) and "Gandolf" (the "Bert Sampson" of fantasy names) didn't tip you off, the announcement itself makes it clear that this is about punching up the weather story: "A storm with a name takes on a personality all its own," writes Tom Niziol. Such "personality," he claims "adds to awareness."

As in awareness of the Weather Channel, Read notes. As in, Google awareness (and Twitter hashtags).

Caity Weaver:

Yesterday afternoon, The Weather Channel whipped itself up into such a frenzy over the East Coast's upcoming snowstorm that its website exploded from the inside, vomiting maps, janky mountain graphics, and CAPSLOCKED WEATHER WARNINGS all over its homepage.

This is just in a small section of one block. Multiply by thousands of apartments, condos and business in the NY metro area flood zones. Am posting this because the newshounds keep telling us how things are looking up here (interspersed with stories of freaky deaths and accidents). The reality is thousands with lives suddenly spilled out onto the street because of the Koch brothers and other climate-fouling villains.

Vaguely related: Mitt Romney interview from 2007 [YouTube] where he explains his religious beliefs, including Jesus coming back to Jerusalem and Missouri for the end-times (simultaneously or 1000 years apart -- he lost me on this). The media needed an electoral horserace in 2012 to sell advertising so they gave us this lunatic.
