The day NYC was buried in hype.

The news media has a major problem with accurately reporting weather that hits New York City. The problem is that the news media lives in New York City, and they think that the weather affecting the 2.5% of the country in the five boroughs is national news for everyone else. This navel gazing, combined with years of practice at turning non-stories into exaggerated news graphics and life-or-death narratives, can create some pretty embarrassing moments for us New Yorkers. We know that the media is just lazy and like talking about themselves, and so does Jon Stewart, who takes cable news to task for its blizzard bluster.
