TWC and choice of programming

By: Astrometeor , 8:52 PM GMT on March 07, 2013

Some of the portions of this was typed when Nemo was/just happened. The rest I have just typed up today as I add more comments to it.

//begin rant

So, the majority of the items on weather.com are still talking about Nemo, and the next blizzard. Not really paying attention to the severe weather outbreak in Mississippi and Alabama. Lost more respect for TWC. I mean, it is okay to talk about a giant storm if there is nothing else weather-related going on, but when there is a tornado outbreak going on in the South, I would expect the only major weather TV channel to be featuring that and the subsequent tornado warnings rather than something that is old news and everyone is not paying attention to anymore.

On the TV, there are more commercials playing than the minutes they have spent on the tornadoes. That is just sad and pathetic really. When there are tornado emergencies going on, I bet the NWS would appreciate it if every possible media site is covering it. I know that they eventually did coverage on this system, but the fact that they were tardy to the party (one of my favorite phrases) is almost immoral and unethical.

And then the shows. Reef Wranglers? Discovery had a thing on this a couple of years ago, they got rid of it because it is such a boring job. Guy picks up piece of concrete, goes sets it down in ocean, checks up on it every once in a while, and moves coral around as needed. At least have shows that are much more pertaining to the weather then "yeah, we pay attention to the forecast." Might as well come video my place and make a show about a high-school student following weather events. <---That is a great idea Astrometeor, we shall do that! Or you could spend the free time that TWC gets and do shows educating the masses about different types of weather, go in-depth into how weather works. Some say that is boring, but those are people with no tastes and shouldn't be watching anyways. If you want it interesting, then talk about interesting things.

Now I am not saying that everything that TWC does is bad (after all it gives financial support to WU) (although that naming thing is PRETTY bad), but ignoring important weather outbreaks is kind of sad. Jim Cantore is pretty boss, love to see him stop by the next time I have severe weather.

I'm a supporter of The Weather Channel...but, I have to agree, the amount of programming that goes on now is just be ridiculous. Go back to just Storm Stories, and maybe Hurricane Hunters.
