The ratings-motivated TV “news” stations have gone beyond hyping Hurricane Irene and have crossed over into pure propaganda. The images of New York City being shown are of the worst areas, the isolated small flood, of trees blowing without zooming out for proper context, etc. The reporters are appearing wet and weather-beaten even when the conditions are not that bad, and so on.

As Irene turned out to be a major dud and delivered very little wind and rain, the stations are trying even harder to mislead you with exaggerated images. The Mayor and MTA are also on the defensive and are issuing reports accentuating the isolated damage.

Battery Park City was a forced evacuation center and site for much of the news crew. We thought you might want to see what the conditions were REALLY like down here. Please enjoy our short film. It’s a comedy.
