More earthquake fallout (so to speak)
Fagstein critiques media responses to the earthquake although I think he’s kind of overdoing it here. It was a small quake, no damage done, and dozens of local media folks didn’t have to be woken up to talk about it at 1 a.m.
What most people wanted to do was check and make sure it wasn’t just them and that others had also experienced it. Twitter told me that in a few seconds. The further links to official earthquake sites were interesting but not nearly as critical. Honestly, I think people could wait till this morning to get the other background details from the mainstream media.
