Widespread disgust with cable networks



I won't even attempt to link to every blogpost or Twitter, but the disgust with the cable networks' coverage of this storm seems absolute and universal among Louisianans. I keep looking for someone who can find something positive or useful on CNN, Fox News, or MSNBC, but people in the city and across the country are howling at how bad this coverage is.

CNN meteorologist Chad Meyers compared a hurricane to: "It's just like getting hit with a Ho-Ho - when you get hit with the white part, it's OK, but when you get hit with the chocolate you get whammed." (Not a direct quote, but pretty close.) I swear to God. (Jon Stewart, find that clip!)

The New Orleans stations are doing great work. Watch all four stations' live feed on this page.
