Can’t believe how many of these US TV commentators feel the need to stand in water. It seems that you cannot gauge how serious is hurricane Sandy unless you are actually standing in water showing viewers that ‘yes, there is a flood because see, I am standing in it!’
And then there are the comparisons of ‘when I was standing in this same area earlier today it was just a car park or a street and see how it is under water now’.
We have watched all channels, CNN, ABC, Fox and they all have a fantasy with the level of water. Currently watching a guy on CNN who is standing in water up to his waist in New Jersey and he has just told viewers he has been in that same spot since 3pm and the water has risen to his waist in that time. Gosh, he’d have to be cold by now!
