.
so, why do people let those who are obviously trolling get onto the homepage of huge sites (like yahoo) and why does the news show viral videos that were faked (magnetboy, the vid of the fat kid putting metal on his chest and having it stick because he is "magnetic (i think fox had this vid, cant remember)).
anyway, are people really so stupid that they cant see the troll?

Why?
For attention, fame, and money. Simple as that.

Ah, the IRL trolls are the salt and pepper of the news, they liven up the boring troll-less experience.
And since the stations themselves troll people with propaganda (looking @ u fox) why wouldn’t they support trolls?
