  •  the more explicit mocking (10+ / 0-)

    was early on (e.g., from what I heard, some of the hosts on The View were laughing about her going to the hospital). Once news got out that she wasn't there for the normal morning sickness the laughing was replaced by the more typical ignorant, "who needs facts?" kind of reporting -- e.g., calling HG "severe morning sickness." The fact that the news media is still calling HG "severe morning sickness" and has apparently moved on to more entertaining things like blathering on about the possibility of twins and such is, imho, just more evidence that they don't understand how serious HG is. It would also indicate that they don't think their audience is interested in taking it very seriously, either.

    For what it's worth, I don't ever watch network news or "morning shows" and on a scale of 1-to-10 I'd rate my interest in celebrity type news at about -5. I only caught wind of this story because people I know who've had their lives turned upside down by HG started talking about it.
