In an earlier article in the Star News, NHC Commissioner Barfield said something to the effect...we can't make the public pay attention. There are a lot of people, in general much of society, that are so busy with other things that they just are not aware of what is going on around them. A case in point, just this week my neighbor asked me if we are still having to boil our water. Now, that guy is a friend...but how stupid can you be? This news event happened two weeks ago!
I see some comments in there about educating the media...apparently those interns and amateurs are just parrotting what they are given...and WWAY does a lot of that, admittedly. Before I would heap a bunch of scorn on everybody else's response, I would have to ask how did the media do getting out the right story. What kind of questions are they asking? Do they even understand the issue?
And...are people even smart enough to get it. I mean...Lady Gaga is on the cover of People this week, and Lindsay Lohan just got sprung and is in rehab, now! Get your priorities straight, WWAY!
