I work for the media monster you speak of and we LIVE for these kinds of stories. Every lead in about the earthquake started with 'a mere month away from the 10th anniversary of 9/11 leaves new yorkers feeling vulnerable and afraid. Today's earthquake did nothing to alleviate those fears...' Its just the business we are in. Obviously we are going to make a big deal out of the earthquake because it new York hasn't had one in over 100 years. And if every other network carries it then WE look stupid for not covering it. I agree we talk about it too much And whip people into a frenzy, especially with the upcoming hurricane. But that shouldn't be a surprise to you. When we have a story that affects a large amount of people our ratings go up. No ifs ands or buts about it. The media will ALWAYS be like this and there is no point in complaining about it. The news is a business just like PR and we need to make money. If we don't report On it we lose viewers.

I've never even HEARD of ReelZchannel...any idea what channel that is? and katie holmes as jacki O ? PLEASE she is one of the worst actors EVER- chris must be pleased that his favorite channel decided not to air this monstrosity of a show looks like ReelZchannel is DUH LOSING!!!!!
wow, I never thought I'd see the day when I learned a new fact about GWTW..fiddle dee dee. any other random facts?
I think this is a great point - I've heard a little bit about lockerbie in regards to libya and moammar (we are on a first name basis as it were) Americans need to be more aware of the world and less interested in huckabee slamming portman and stupid charlie sheen. How is that news? and why do we KEEP seeing it on EVERY major news channel? it's ridiculous

I totally agree, Aaiello. There is no "correct" way to parent. I think that as long as your kids are happy and healthy then the parent has done a great job.

well it looks like Chua is already retreating from her "chinese are superior mothers" approach. Based upon thousands of negative e-mails and blogs she's now saying that she'll allow her daughters to go to sleepovers and pursue extracurricular activities other than the piano or violin. maybe she's seen the light.

thanks for the comment book and blog geek! I consider myself one of the luckiest kids out there - not only do I have the best parents, but we have such a great relationship that I feel comfortable going to either with any problems I have. Chris and I are SO lucky to have grown up the way we have and I wouldn't change it for anything.
