Most of these tv shows push a plot, and then at the end it's different so they can be all "Gotcha! I bet you didn't see that coming".
Now the news seems to be doing the same thing. The clock kid and other ones.
Something happens. A side get's pushed to get everybody into a frenzy, then a week later it turns out they were lying about this or that or "new information" comes out and get's everyone back into a frenzy/ keeps it front page worthy.
What the fuck is this shit? This is why I don't watch the news. Just seeing bits and pieces of this stuff online makes me WUT.
