Has anyone else read this entire thread and feel like they just got done watching the 6:00 news?
It just seems eerily similar to how the press is reacting to the whole Cheney-shot-a-guy-and-didn't-tell-anyone-for-three-days thing...
Eh...maybe it's just me.
Anyway, it does suck that JD wasn't able to have coverage of TF but realistically nothing was shown that we hadn't already heard about and, in some cases, seen pictures of.
I didn't read all the commentary from the various sites, I mostly just looked at photos. And although it's nice to see pictures and coverage on your favorite site, I always hit 3, 4 or 5 different sites because everyone gets a different shot, includes something that someone else missed or covers other lines that may be cool but not related to SW.
As a matter of fact, a large number of sites I visited for info weren't even SW sites, they were more generic toy sites. A lot of times those guys end up with better overviews of lines rather than focusing on minute details and that type of coverage is sometimes better IMO. I take the same approach to get all my news, I don't just watch CBS I also look at CNN, MSNBC, Fox and Internet blogs.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that yes, it does suck that something happened and JD didn't get coverage, but that doesn't mean that coverage and pictures weren't available. And you don't have to go to sites you don't care for if you don't want to...there was plenty of coverage available from various sites.
