Journalists are only interested in buffets and vacations, which is not a bad ideal, really, but doesn't make them any more qualified to put stuff before the public record than you or I.

A few days ago I urged you all to go hunt this ape-monster. What have I wrought?
Wow. Now there's bands of angry Indians roaming the streets, looking for the
ape-monster. Some people say it's a person in an ape mask, and those very same
people are going around beating up suspected ape-mask-wearers. Like, they find
people sleeping on roofs, and beat them up because they might be the ape-man!
Torch wielding mobs! Violence in the streets! Anarchy! Lions having sex with
lambs and creating leo-sheep-things! Um, what was I talking about again?
Oh, the ape guy. Apparently, it's got metal claws, red eyes, and green glowing
chest. Police are talking about mass "fear psychosis", but there's also a
$1000 reward for capturing the ape-monster, so it's sort of a mixed message.
One such rioter was quoted as saying, "Uh, I'm just here to take pictures of
the monkey-man. Oh, and Pigdog told me to say they sent me."
