The recent Ebola death and resultant ridiculous paranoia that has spread across this country has been caused by the tabloid reporting by our media.
Instead of just reporting the facts about how Ebola is transmitted, the media have to resort to sensationalism and exaggerations to create stories that have resulted in the laughable overreactions of citizens, schools, cities and businesses.
As Dr. Kent Brantly, one of the first U.S. citizens to have Ebola said recently in an interview, the irrational fear about Ebola that has spread across this country is absurd.
The media have long been the biggest contributors to the chaos, racism and trouble that exist in this country.
Never miss a local story.
The days of the media being accountable and responsible for what they report are long gone.
It is all about the story, creating the story, being the first to report the story with very little consideration given to the facts and being accountable for what is reported.
