<YelseyKing> We live in a society where one person has ruined things for everyone many, many, many times. And hell, they don't even have to be true incidents.
<YelseyKing> Like that poor hapless pizza place that was bullied out of existence because some morons looking for "lulz" decided to claim to other morons that there was an "elite pedophile ring" operating out of it. Connected to Oballaroros.
<YelseyKing> (Obama/Hillary/Soros. The evil trio behind every bad thing in this country. Allegedly.)
<YelseyKing> Also, the fake news sites seem obsessed with pedophilia, and are going the "DARE" approach with it. "It's absolutely everywhere! Everyone is doing it! Protect yourself and your children!"
<StriderHLC> That's part of how fake news operates; it's an accusation that people have an immediate visceral reaction to.
<YelseyKing> Point. Maximum outrage sells, and what's more outrageous than crimes against kids?
<YelseyKing> The problem is, they're overmilking a dead cow.
<StriderHLC> That is an odd metaphor
