I thought you were being exceedingly restrained in your comments. The farticle is written by someone who wouldnt even get pass grades in 10th standard. Clearly a hit job.
True enough. I was restrained in my comments more than I perhaps should have been because I decided to not go down to their level and grovel in the mud trying to reason with them.
They, being "journalists", might not have the required journalism standard, but at least we can try to.

Yeah, I kinda thought so too. It must be nice to be in a job where if you are afraid that voicing your own concerns might draw flak on your subject matter ignorance, you can simply cite "unnamed sources" and project the concerns through them.
Its the "No No! It not me, it's them! I am only the media" phenomenon
