Dumb People!!
« on: August 25, 2009, 01:57:19 PM »
I get so sick of our DUMB news reporters and other people, you think people would do a little reading before they open their mouth's, in the video the guys gets stung by yellow jackets and they say that then others call everything Bee's, and the last part of it they show honey bee's, they confuse people that dont know.

Right on, It really ticked me off.
People who don't know, shouldn't show.
Thanks TwT for being there with me.

I seen this when it aired a couple days ago or maybe even yesterday.  I had the same reaction at the end with the clip of honey bee or bees whatever it was.  I started to watch it but knew exactly what you were saying as soon as it started.

If they showed something this misleading, like showing a Ford when Talking about a GM, they would probably get sued.

Lets all send them an email and complain.  I will right now.

You get a form that says

I do not like....

and I put;

when you reenact a vicious attack by hornets on a human and then show a clip of hundreds of honey bees at the end of story.  This has got to be the most ignorant thing you could do to confuse and mislead people.  Now viewers may think a honeybee nest is hornets and kill them or think foraging honey bees are deadly hornets and spray there flowers with pesticides which the foraging honeybees would them bring back to there hives.  I am not the only person who noticed this as I'm sure you are finding out. I belive this program should be aired again with correct footage of the type of hornets involved in the attack and then show and explain that the previously aired footage of bees (practicaly portrait as hornets) is actually honeybees.  Hornets are not bees, they are a wasp and they have an ill temper.

Here is the feedback link
