LOL... on Good morning America Sam Champion was outside with 2 EMT's and asked... "what is the ONE TIP you can tell everybody about dealing with this cold?"

Answer (drumroll please.....) "Try to stay indoors as much as possible" Glad to know..... Thank God for that answer.......

Meanwhile, Sam Champion and the 2 EMT's were standing outside having this conversation.

Believe it or not, some of these people went to journalism school and learned to ask these probing questions.

No one ever said the media was a meritocracy anymore. A lot of television personalities are only on the air because of connections, looks or for being famous in a different industry.

To me itís the breathless hysteria of cold that the media drives. Itís been cold before, but everything is over the top....donít leave your house....frostbite in 10 min....50 million people at risk. Was it impressive cold? Absolutely. Should people take precaution? Yup. Thatís it. Didnít need 10 reporters telling me that itís cold and bundle up.
