Be Afraid… Be Very Afraid… Playing with Balloons!

If you’ve paid attention to the media in the past two days you’ve seen them switch from leading with the Memphis police beating story to the new China spy balloon story. 

I lead on last night’s newscasts, and tonight as it drifts into Kansas it is leading on the PBS News Hour. 

That’s a lot of attention for a Chinese weather balloon that “Defense department officials are tracking across the central US”… 

So… Be afraid. Be Very Afraid! 

The truth?

While we can’t be sure, it’s probably a standard weather research balloon with a descent mechanism that has failed. 

When it comes to quality journalism, this unfortunate work reads like the product of today’s woke advocacy journalism schools where the students have all studied by copying text in the scriptorium illuminated only by gaslight.
