Wizbang! is on the case.

...We finally decided not to do anything because the tourist season was in full swing. The hotels were 100% booked full. What if we issued a warning, which would have led to an evacuation, and nothing had happened. What would be the outcome? The tourist industry would be immediately hurt. Our department would not be able to endure a lawsuit...

After watching a night of "coverage" by CNN (I forego anything better with basic cable in Tahoe -- that too is a Work In Progress) and not seeing a word nor hearing a peep on this revelation, I'm convinced Big Old Media (some use the quaint phrase "mainstream" media) is simply too slow and biased to be reliable for anyone who thinks.

If this isn't the story on Thursday, CNN and its brethern may be officially deemed brain dead regarding such a critical element of this disaster and how it may have been mitigated.

This real government malfeasance is so much more important to reveal than the current childish nonsense in which Big Old Media is indulging themselves.
