Dude, you are telling ME about media hype!? My government lives on that crap!
Of course everything is hyped! But good thing are also hyped, so while Spain and Greece may not be as bad as I think, Germany and France are not as good either.
And the prostest are there, hyped or not, they are not photoshoping people on the streets. (To be fair, Spanish people is seriously ridiculous, they are 'indignant' about some problems their country have, and here we are like 'You HAVE to be kidding me!' It's like those memes of 'First World Problems', but in real life. DX
Last year, there was an earthquake here, epicenter elsewhere in the country, but felt in the capital, it was raining, the city flooded like Venice in high tide, and it was hailing. It looked like the world decided to simply screw us, and what did the government TV channel said? 'The situation in the capital has been normalized' cue to change channel to an actual one to see live footage of the highway looking like the Amazon river with cars floating.
THAT is the media being a bitch.
