The media has already painted today's problem as being Carnival's fault, when it was the shipyard that was responsible for the mooring. But then with near hurricane force winds causing the event, it really seems to be an act of nature.

The most egregious remarks I've read so far come from Gene Sloan at USA Today, where his story led in with "the fire-ravaged Carnival Triumph broke loose....". Fire-ravaged? A fuel oil fire broke out and was confined to the engine room and extinguished. He makes it sound like the ship was ablaze from stem to stern.
