As for shrugging off the Blockbuster news, it's 100% true that it's not as big of a deal as it is being made out to be. But that doesn't mean that if enough news agencies carry it and blast in the average consumer's face enough times, that it won't become a self-fulfilling prophecy. The perception of the news is more important then the news itself really, and the perception is being blown well out of proportion.
I'm not saying it's a good thing, but that's the way it is.
