Waaaaaaah

Directed at both the original statement and the internet's reaction.

Bitching about the media has become my least favourite cliche by far, even though I do it all the time.

They take complaining about the media to new levels. I hate that they created the whole fake news buzzword. Anytime they disagree with something it gets deemed Fake News. Anytime the media jumps on a story early instead of doing proper research they get called fake news. No it isn't fake news they just wanted to be the first to report and are missing details that come out later which they usually update and/or retract earlier statements.

I remember when it started catching on around pizzagate and I was worried that it would evolve into this.

I'm seeing your avvy as a mailbox now for some reason. When I look at it out of the corner of my eye, that's the shape I'm seeing. I need help.

This shouldn't be an issue because the person receiving the information should be using critical thinking to process the information instead of taking it at face value.

Others defended the Saudi team, suggesting the minute’s silence was not a recognised way to show respect and condolences in the country’s culture or in Islam more broadly.
lol

I'm sure that'll be the official Music Banter position.

See how far arguing culture in a Saudi court gets you.
