    And this is a big new story because? This isn’t worth writing a article about this is more tweet worthy reading this is just a waste of time

      That’s a pretty ignorant stance you’re taking as in “because it doesn’t affect me then it’s not a problem”. No one is implying this is a “big” news story as you put it, more something that is providing information. What’s interesting is, it probably took you as much time, if not more, to post your comment than reading the “waste of time” article.
