Neither catastrophes themselves nor the resulting suffering are the topic of Worst Case. Instead, it is the manipulation of catastrophic scenarios in the media and politics. Potential catastrophes are omnipresent in news and talk shows, invoking the worst case even if it fails to materialize. The unending torrent of disaster movies provides a continual loop of graphic imagery depicting the end of times.
