The liberal media picks up on the end of the world. Take a few minutes to listen to the stories:
NPR: Is The End Nigh? We'll Know Soon Enough
Listen to NPR's story on Harold Camping.

Both of the listen links are worth your time to hear how the liberal media is reacting to Camping.
Harold Camping is not the first person to fix a date for the end of the world. There have been dozens of such prophets and so far, they've all been wrong. Camping himself has had to do some recalculation. He first predicted the end would come September 6, 1994. He now explains that he had not completed his biblical research.
Mr. CAMPING: For example, I at that time had not gone through the book of Jeremiah, which is a big book in the Bible that has a whole lot to say about the whole matter of the end of the world.
HAGERTY: So you're not planning for May 22?
Mr. CAMPING: Oh, absolutely not. It is going to happen. There is no plan B.
HAGERTY: I've asked a dozen of Camping's followers the same question. Everyone said even entertaining the possibility that May 21 would come and go, without event, is an offense to God. They all hope they'll be raptured. Some, like Kevin Brown, worry about being left behind.
Mr. BROWN: If I'm here on May 22 and I wake up, I'm going to be in hell. And that's where I don't want to be. So there is going to be a May 22d, and we don't want to be here.
HAGERTY: On the other hand he will, presumably, have lots of company.
