I fucking hate the press.
This isn't news; nobody (important) is really calling for this.
But stories like this do two things:
They generate clicks
They inform the sheeple what to get outraged about.
I'll give them the benefit of the doubt that number 1 is the intended outcome but FUCK THEM FOR THE IRRESPONSIBLE CARELESSNESS OF MAKING STUPID PEOPLE OBSESS OVER IMAGINARY INJUSTICE.
