We’ve Got to Stop Kindling Flames

I want to call out Time Magazine for the headline on this article: http://time.com/4154613/professor-faces-firing-over-belief-sandy-hook-was-a-hoax/

This professor was NOT fired because he believed Sandy Hook was a hoax. He was fired because he went on a campaign of harassment against the parents of one of the victims.

The media really must stop doing this kind of thing. I know they want to sell articles, but headlines like this are incendiary and irresponsible. People will read the headline and jump on a soap box about people getting fired for their beliefs when this is not at all the case. Maybe only stupid people will think that, but they’re the ones who yell the loudest and cause the most damage.

American media: Stop It. Seriously, just stop it.
