The media began reporting on swine flu just a few day's ago. "Nothing to worry about" I thought. After all bird flu came to nothing. Foot and mouth disease came to nothing. Over the following few day's the reports became greater. As usual all the information seemed confused. "it's deadly" "It's not deadly" "We Should be worried" "We shouldn't be worried" "It could potentially kill millions of people" "but let's not panic about it" To be honest I don't know what to think about it. A lot of people where emmediatly sceptical about swine flu and it's dangers. "it's just another media fabrication my media tutor proclaimed.
immediatly conspiracy theory abound about how the virus was government produced in a laboritory.
I think it's indicative of the state of the government and the media when even the general population are mis-trusting and immediatly skeptical of them.
