Seriously, what is this? Why is it whenever there is a post about some egregiously awful (or in this case just drearily pathetic) action by a large institution, there never fails to be a commenter who makes a big dramatic yawn, claims that everyone who is anyone knew that AGES AGO, and implies that it is boring even to be talking about it.
I swear this happened with every damn post about Wikileaks when it was a thing, it has certainly been a post in the first 5 of every single thing I've ever read about the Snowden leaks.
As if knowing something is probably true is somehow equal to or sufficient compared to knowing that something is definitely true.
Seriously, anyone who reads science fiction has probably known or suspected that the NSA was reading and watching everything that happens. But that is very different from KNOWING FOR SURE that it is happening. Because it shouldn't be happening and should be stopped.
Fox deserves to be publicly humiliated for this childish and silly behaviour. Let's not yawn and pretend their pathetic stupidity was common knowledge and it doesn't matter. Fuck that, let them squirm.
