From what I saw, government officials at every level, backed by scientific models, stated the need to take the risk very seriously. And if the eye wall had held up it likely would have meant that winds that were very powerful up high, would have been forced down to ground level. It's pretty unfair to blame the media for what amounts to good fortune. Did the media convince the scientists and government officials of the possible severity, in order to make a story and get ratings? That seems pretty farfetched.
