Cruise Ship ‘Survivor’ Politely Makes CNN Reporter Look Like Shallow Idiot (VIDEO)

“The isolation factor you described, this is the same sort of thing that many people who went through Katrina in New Orleans – those that were left behind – they never heard anything either,” Savidge noted.

“I imagine that’s something very similar,” he added after noting passengers’ lack of ability to communicate with the mainland.

“Yeah, but let’s put that in perspective,” the measured passenger replied. “Katrina was a major devastation. We’re in a freaking cruise ship.”

1. The more I hear from passengers, the more I think that the media went all

crazy-go-nutty on this one. I know...shocking.

3. Eh. Sure, it didn't make a whole lot of sense to make that comparison.

But interviewers typically need to think fast on their feet. Some of them do better than others and some of the really good ones do better than at other times.

6. "interviewers typically need to think fast"....

Which is why CNN has such spectacular failures.

Keep in mind that they are the ones who decided to attract FOX "News" viewers for ratings and abandoned the notion of news.

7. CNN seems to be holding up fox as a legitimate

news source lately. They often put up clips from fox and then 'discuss' as if there is something about the 'story' worth discussing. I will be blocking CNN from my tv.

8. They've gone downhill since Ted Turner left....

The last REAL reporter they had was Bernard Shaw.

11. I think that's why he retired.

 

He knew what was coming.

5. I listened to a lot of the recording. The passenger sounded like a good guy. He talked about

helping each other and community, and that before he absolutely slammed the Katrina equivalence.

9. Martin Savage with a very obvious poor attempt to

conflate and equate two issues that have nothing in common. Good of this fellow to bust his bubble. This example shows how weaker people would just fall in line with the contrived dialogue. People such as Erin here who has already adapted to "manufactured consent corporate media mindset". This good fellow saw right through it however and showed what it means to be solid and not a tool for a buck. Good on him.

13. A kid on reddit was posting an IAMA while he was on the ship.

He said it was stinky but kind of fun and exciting.
The staff did an excellent job of minimizing the discomfort.
Everyone slept out on the decks and it was pleasant sleeping under the stars.
