storm hysteria-mongering

MSM is doing the same usual "global warming doom!" hysteria to freak out the populace they do every one of these storms.

Currently this thing has dropped to a category 1 and the center hasn't even made landfall.

News is reporting on power outages - but fails to mention it's because they did a controlled shutdown of the two nuclear reactors along the coast, just to be safe. The storm didn't actually take anything out.

Then they are saying that even though it's category 1 it's basically still a category 4 and CNN just said "just because the wind has decreased a couple miles per hour doesn't mean it isn't as strong as it was when it was category 4".

Uh, no, that's exactly what it means.

Also, category 4 means 155 mph wind.
Category 1 means 74 mph wind.

That's not "a couple miles per hour" decrease that CNN is claiming.

If they play it down and someone dies, everyone will blame that person for doing something stupid.

If they play it up and someone dies, they can blame Trump for not making enough preparations.
