There are numerous media outlets claiming that this OK tornado was the "worst in the world". While it does rank up there in size the duration and wind speed, it certainly was not not the worst in the world! In the US the worst tornado to date was the tri-state tornado and 695 people died there. It has yet to be any other tornado that has killed so many people, not even the 2011 outbreak. And hope to God and all his angels, that never happens! But the worst tornado in the world took place in Bangladesh in 1989, and there were 13oo tornado related deaths, or at least confirmed anyway. Some say it could be at least 2000 people.
Why doesn't the media even bother to check facts anymore? Ya there is the Freedom of Speech, but I guess it applies to lying out the ass, then just do a retract the next day after many folks read their reports, and had the ratings. Fucking morons. CNN ranks up there for being the worst! And many people thought FOX news were the worst... Oh and all media has a serious issue with OCD, well media news outlets, they have drugs for that now!
But I bet Obama is loving this. It takes the focus off him and his utter failings and controversies, and cover ups..And I am sure there some paranoid conspiracy morons that think the Obama Admin did this just so the focus would shift off of him. Just like some think the govt "steered" hurricane Katrina to New Orleans to "wipe out the black folks" *rolleyes*
Ok, ok...rant over..lol

Maybe they are referring in terms of monetary costs? But I know what you mean about the lack of integrity & fact checking before something gets aired or goes to press. Seems like that has been lost & it's just easier to retract the false statements later. :/
