This is a typical MSM "crisis idiocy" article.

You could stand in the middle of Times Square handing out $20 bills, and the New York Post would find someone to protest it!

It's like todays "Orlando Sentinel"

"INCREASED HURRICANE THREAT"

The small print reveals we now have a 4.9% chance of getting hit by a hurricane this year, as opposed to the usual 4.0% chance. In other words, we have a 1 on 20 chance, as opposed to the typical 1 in 25 chance.

.....and the papers make it into a big story!

"Fearing Rogers was a British spy, Washington turned down his request to join the Continental Army at the outset of the American Revolution. Rogers went on to raise a company of loyalist rangers, but failed to have the impact he had in the previous war."

I don't know if you read the whole story, but that sentence was the one that grabbed me.
