Some people are not intimidated by man nor beast. Some are not even the least bit shaken up by Mother Nature no matter if she is huffing and puffing a hurricane or not. We have already seen people enjoying wakeboarding merrily during Harvey. We know that snakes crawling out of a fishes mouth do not scare some fishermen and we Teddy Stick has reported that people are willing to sue over a fishing spot while other just catch fish in the house as hurricanes blow.
We can now add one more fearless fisherman to the fleet as the Conservative Tribune catches a glimpse of a man fishing on Daytona Beach as Irma attempts to give her meanest roar. It may as well have been a kitten purr because this anger was NOT budging from his fishing spot. However, the reporter in the studio wasn’t too eager to show the dangerous scene and quickly told the cameraman, “let’s not show that.”
When the cameraman pans during the newscaster dramatic performance, a glimpse of the brave man fishing is only seen for a split second.
“This is a mandatory evacuation, there should not be a gentleman right now in the ocean,” the reporter says into the camera. However, liberty exists and, while quite foolish, this gentleman was not about to let anything ruin his trip, it seems.
Trying to keep sounding as if everyone is in a panic when clearly some are not, the anchor also says, “It appears that he is fishing. Let’s not show that. That is not what you should be doing at all right now.”
“Let’s not show that,” says the newscaster.
It seems that anyone who thinks for themselves or that proves that, while awful, the coverage was media overkill for ratings is not allowed to be observed.
Certainly, no one should go fishing in a hurricane. Then again, no one should cower as the world ends, either. Some people are going to overcome anything and have a good day.
Meanwhile, most viewers have only one question: Was the fishing any good?
