Panic In The InfoPorn Age

Every day brings new and more alarming news about the Coronavirus. Personally, I believe that the media has played their normal fear-driven methods to instill panic to the public.

The media has no “indoor voice”. Everything is a crisis, especially things that aren’t actually crises at all. An issue like Corona-virus must be dealt with from a fact-based position, but this is exactly what the media is least equipped to provide to the public.

The media cannot tone down their own fear-driven panic-inducing rhetoric and style long enough to get any useful information to the public.
