The media now exists to sell papers. The infamous McDonald's "hot coffee" incident is a spectacular example. Everyone reads, "Woman spills hot coffee on herself, sues McDonald's, wins millions. The system is broken."How many people actually know that the store in question was out of heat-proof cups, and had served her the coffee in a non-approved cup that proceeded to melt in her lap, which is the reason she suffered 3rd degree burns to her groin? She didn't spill it. The cup melted. That's not reported. Because it's not inflammatory.
According to the documentary that I watched in which this woman was interviewed, this isn't correct either.
