The Code Red Hype Hall Of Fame
from the the-press-have-to-hype-something dept
I haven’t posted much about Code Red because it seemed like pure overhype from the beginning. The folks over at the Register seem to agree and have created the Code Red Hype Hall of Fame to expose journalists who blindly hyped Code Red without taking any time to understand it. Of course, I don’t necessarily agree when they say that maybe the press should have focused more on the Sircam virus or the Baltimore fire – both of which I thought were overhyped in their own way.
