It must be another slow week for the media: With nothing better to hype up they’re focused on swine flu. In the absence of enough facts to fill a 24 hour news day they’ve got every possible talking head offering an opinion. Where there are cameras and reporters there are also aspiring politicians that want to appear engaged. Follow that with avoiding pork products, banning pork imports from infected areas and then wholesale slaughter of pigs in muslim countries: Before you know it we have a pandemic of panic.
If only we could vaccinate ourselves from the viral spread of speculative opinion before it spreads throughout the global village.
