    I have noticed that when it looked like a cat 3 hurricane was going to hit Southeast Florida, CNN's coverage of Irene was sparse to minimal at best. Yet, when it headed for NYC, CNN upped its coverage to 24 hours and featured Irene every chance it got. According to CNN, the people who live in NYC lives are more important and valuable than those who live in West Palm Beach, per say. Apparently, CNN has decided to play G-D and make those kinds of decisions. Right?
