How is it even legal for crap like that to be published? 

The author of the article should be fired and whoever is responsible for allowing that to be published should be fired. 

News media is deemed entertainment in a court of law 

 Total clicks are king

That's totally absurd. This is not even remotely close to entertainment. If news media is really deemed that then someone out there...or a group of people need to starting working on correcting that. 

If social media outlets (such as Facebook and Twitter) are "blocking" posts which provide misinformation which is being posted around then the same should be done for news outlets.

True but there should be some personal responsibility involved too.  Living as a zombie sounds terrible.

Anyway, great morning out.  Loving the great sleeping weather lately, waking up cold to shut windows.  Looks like an active evening up this way with storms.

As @STILL N OF PIKE mentioned, news organizations are not legally obliged to run truthful stories.  I take most reporting with a grain of salt unless I can find multiple sources.  Twitter is not a complete cesspool in so much as there are still some real journalists making on the ground reports.

It's uncomfortable today .. 

I mean it's only 84 here but for some reason it's got less patience about it.  Was going to do a long b-ride but it's too warm even for that.  I hate that. Plus the wind's swirling and that has way of always being in your face and resistant - weird. 

And what's up with the early slam shut tropics.   Not even the peak and there's nothing but Larry ... I guess that counts, but there's nothing coming. It's like hitting a lull during the peak....

Some interesting stuff coming off the coast of Africa albeit >7 days away.  The tendency for better ridging moving forward combined with the baseline La Niña suggests we’re not done.   It does look above normal temperature wise over and above recent baseline for the foreseeable future.  That’s good for me.

Reloading?  Same for the W. Pac, which had been unusually quiet for about 2 weeks but now as a super typhoon heading NW, may affect Taiwan, almost certain for China.
