Carnival Cruise ship lost power in Gulf, passenger reactions overboard?

It has become a 24 hour news event, the stranded cruise ship.

Anyone think the news coverage has gone to a ludicrous level?
Yes, it is very hard for passengers and on worried shore families, but it is not like New Orleans after Katrina, and the ship is not sinking.

I do consider the decision to go back to US was correct.
Quote:
Carnival officials had initially planned to tow the ship to a Mexican port, but after Gulf currents pushed it further north before tugboats could take control, and considering that 900 of the passengers do not have passports, the company decided to take the Triumph to Mobile, instead.
So, is the media is making a mountain out of mole hill?
