This isn't news. The Cascadia Subduction Zone has long been known as the greatest threat of seismic activity. It would no doubt destroy Seattle and even affect Northern CA. It's just that unlike some of the more well known CA faults like the San Andreas, it's not very active, although yes, it's a little bit overdue.

Actually even for southern CA, the San Andreas isn't even the most worrisome fault.

Not to mention the huge underwater faults off the west coast that have barely been studied/monitored.

Sheppard Smith is the only FOX News Reporter I have an ounce of respect for. The guy needs to move to a real news station.

This came up on the Buffs board a while ago. Pretty good article from The New Yorker:


http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/20...really-big-one


"In the Pacific Northwest, everything west of Interstate 5 covers some hundred and forty thousand square miles, including Seattle, Tacoma, Portland, Eugene, Salem (the capital city of Oregon), Olympia (the capital of Washington), and some seven million people. When the next full-margin rupture happens, that region will suffer the worst natural disaster in the history of North America."

That would depend upon the slant of the propaganda you want to affirm your political stances upon. Lefties like CNN, MSNBC and the like while righties like FOX news. While our corporate overlords wink, nod, and buy whatever they desire in the worlds political arena. You all are hating on the wrong people.

That's why I go to BBC for my news. It ignores all of the extreme and embarrassing dualism that is the demise of this country.

I don't trust the BBC either, it's a state run news agency. I go to the internet for all my news and I triangulate every important story, that is, if it's a big story I'll read it on three different sites from 3 different slants. I can generally get a good idea of what is going on.

The presidential race coming up will be key in researching what candidates best represent my position. If there's a big story on a candidate, I'd like to see what different news outlets are saying about it. The media has their candidate (this is how Obama got elected) and I have my candidate.

NPR is the greatest news source in the world.

The BBC for accurate reporting.... that's a rich one.

Try The Drudge Report, at least you got a shot at accuracy.

Glad I live in Colorado. Though Yellowstone could screw us as well. We are all on the brink of destruction in this life.

And with this, you've just derailed an interesting thread making it now a political issue.

Trust me, if you live in the danger zone you are well aware of it. In the year I lived in Seattle I probably heated it referenced at least once a week.

The drudge report? Accurate, unbiased news source? You've been living in Mexico too long

If you have distrust with the media, you'll find fault with every single outlet. I still find the New York Times to be pretty good, though their opinion section obviously leans left (though it has some conservative opinion in there). NPR is good for straight news with a variety of opinions though I suppose you could make the argument a state run organization is picking the topics. But I keep pretty politically informed so I don't mind news with a slant towards my beliefs. People who are dumb enough not to know there might be more than one side to a story don't seek out the news anyway.

I've lived in SoCal for 13 years and the most intense earthquake I experienced happened in Portland Oregon. Fwiw

Both the New York Times and NPR are about as left-leaning as they come. The Wall Street Journal is much more unbiased, though it still tends to err on the side of big government.

You don't even know what left-leaning is.
