    anything to get the ratings..

    If weather forecasters were cyclists it would kind of be like Bicycling magazine..

    How to train for your epic get groceries by bike ride ! In 6 months you will be ready.
    Sweat on the top tube, how to recover from this colossal disaster.
    Underwear or, oh gosh golly naked, under the bibs. See the pictures !

    The mundane is sensationalized to the level of stupid just to get the ignorant riled up.

    Yep. A few years back now, the National Weather Service put out a formal request to The Weather Channel saying basically "Yo, knock this **** off. It's weather. Quit trying to make everything a big event," in regards to things like The Polar Vortex, the Vortex Bomb, and naming all of the winter snow events as though they were hurricanes. Of course, TWC flipped 'em the bird and carries on with the scary sounding names and such.
    I lost my phone number. Can I have yours?

    329.45 Million in the US are affected by weather each day. Not every weather event garners the panic the media tries to instill. It's all about the ratings. It's not about safety or enjoying the day in the park.

    Doom attracts viewers. All the way back to the first newspapers... editors knew that "If it bleeds, it leads" is the key to selling your news product and making money.

    Naming snowstorms and cold snaps is the height of ridiculous hoopla, but TV and web viewers lap it up.
