The discussion last night over the so called "roommate law" left me the odd man out on why the matter created such a kerfuffle with two Council members blaming the main stream media for hyping the issue and getting the facts wrong.
My position is the media got the essence of the dispute right and local media actually played it very nice while social media boiled to a point where an influential on-line tabloid gave the dispute far-ranging reach.
I am not one to chastise the MSM for their shortcomings, but this is not a case of media ratings mongering.
It was a case of events striking a nerve and today's social media and new media able to accelerate interest.
