Spreading fear far and wide

Headline tonight on

FBI warns of possible terror threat at sports events

First sentence of story (emphasis mine):

The FBI said Friday there is no specific, credible threat of a terror attack aimed at college basketball arenas or other sports stadiums but acknowledged alerting law enforcement to a recent Internet posting discussing such attacks.

What else is there to say? I just don't get it.

And despite the fact that the FBI has NO CREDIBLE EVIDENCE of a threat, the local ABC-affiliate news tonight led off with a 3-minute report on the potential threat to the Big 12 men's and women's basketball tournaments here. They made it clear that there isn't a CREDIBLE threat, but then proceeded to discuss what could happen in detail.

Funny, but there seems to be a lot of fear being spread around about something that isn't considered a credible threat.

Bush's numbers are in the toilet, so I guess it's time to get out the fear again. So what else is new?
