About four times today I was asked if perhaps the swine/Mexico/H1N1 flu story is manufactured hysteria.
It certainly seems like another shining moment for Big Media. 257 people get the flu and 300,000 pigs have to die.
Last time we saw this level of media attention, people were eating each other in New Orleans.
Meanwhile, scientists are now basically saying it's flu season.
FLU SEASON? OH MY GOD! ITS FLU SEASON! RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!
I need another round of Ovechkin therapy.
