Angry reactions have followed this attempt to sanitize an unpopular decision, which seem to even rile past and current senior staffers of the same media organization.
I...I am....well...I have this 'evil' feeling some sentiments, like those being expressed above are not entirely sincere.
Call me an over-analyser and give me a breathalyser...I just can't help but wonder about the possibility of the media group on the spot, deploying its 'social media monolith' to tenderize the harsh spotlight.
Rarely can one find strong opposition to a decision, so closely stitched with words like, 'To his credit...' strategically leading to the self-criticism-worshipping quote, and link to the big boss's rejoinder.
....I mean, it just appears too calculated, like the post is also intended to achieve a covert purpose.
What do you think...or can we safely conclude that I'm crazy?
