But who got hurt and what law got broken? Nobody got killed and nobody got robbed (I think). The media is just mad because they got totally duped so now they are going to pile on like you've never seen before.
But its just a tawdry story that doesn't affect any of us, really. People lied and did stupid things. Gosh, whoda thunk it? Besides all the wasted time at the water cooler talking about this, that is.
Who cares? Bah. There are bigger problems that deserve some time and discussion and thought. This doesn't.
That's one reason it is a big deal. Whether it be fake girlfriends or fake terrorist attacks, media sources are regularly proven to be unreliable. And that affects lives. Just because it doesn't involve you today, if people can make up stories that aren't true and get the media to help spread the false news, then no one is safe from having their lives destroyed by fraud.
