I think the media just reported the story they had at the time. Itís evolved quite a lot since then. Itís just sad teenagers had to be affected by it.

That and there's just not enough real news in the world for these 24-hour news networks, so they have to "create" news, essentially.

This is hardly what happened. Narratives were created and agendas pushed from the start, there's no doubt about that.

Unfortunately they compete with anyone with an iPhone and a twitter account, so it’s lead to hasty stories not thoroughly researched.

It’s exactly what happened for the most part. CNN, NYT, etc have all continued reporting the facts as they became available.

By then the damage is already done. The "continued reporting" doesn't get nearly the same spotlight as the original does, unfortunately.

I would bet there is no punishment levied by the school to anyone. But, yeah, I guess lunatics that want to believe a narrative no matter what, yeah, that ship sailed. I think that’s more a climate of the polarized political climate we live in now.

I agree but I think that polarized political climate was caused primarily by the media and social media.

Yeah, I get that. There are people who believe Clinton was operating a pedophile ring out of a pizza place too.

Does Breitbart push that? Deadspin is a National News outlet, not just some lunatic blogger.

I don’t know who pushes it. I don’t read Breitbart. I just know plenty of people believe that stuff, several on the debate forum. I don’t really consider deadspin a reliable source of news. Can’t recall ever logging on to it on purpose, just from links from people on here.

Is Yappi ever going to address the filth he advertises on his "family friend, kids can see this" website?

Frank Stronach is a billionaire suing his daughter for like +$500 million for mismanaging his business The Stronach Group. She has countersued and levied a few charges against him.

Of note:

Among Frank Stronach's most egregious splurges, alleges Belinda Stronach, is commissioning two 12-story-tall bronze statues depicting a Pegasus battling a dragon. Together, the monuments cost $55 million to construct—almost $50 million over budget, according to the filing. One is installed at Gulfstream Park and the second is currently being stored "in pieces" in China.

https://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-rac...ntario-lawsuit

He has TWO 12 story high Pegasus statues defeating a dragon. One of them is in front of his race tracks in Florida, Gulfstream Park. Just cant imagine paying for not one but two of them

This picture doesnt do it justice

I dont think so

Can you imagine going 50 mill over budget and the look on the salesman's face when you asked for two of them to be made

You really need to see other angles of it to understand how big this thing is. Just out of control

That's NAFTA money. It's great to live in America's Hat if you have auto parts manufacturing contracts.

Absolutely. Just read a book called The Smear and it's actually pretty frightening how much control lobbyists and politicians have over journalists and media networks.

Think he meant to post that in the ĎHow long will the Government Shutdown last?í DB thread, but was probably drinking again.

Poor OP was just wanting some tennis info and he gets a drunk Harry post. He is probably mad at Yappi, thinking he deleted his post....

As more footage became available, they incorporated it.

Was very happy to see Bricks and Mortar easily win the $7 million Pegasus Turf. Horse is a freak.
