Hey, no fair! How dare a mainstream newspaper put out a fair and
reasonable editorial regarding UFOs and it not contain
disingenous remarks!

Why if this keeps up real journalism might break out all over
the place and we'd all be in for a world of hurt!

Somebody ought to write the LA Times and warn them if they don't
stop publishing thoughtful and level-headed editorials we'll be
out in the streets protesting!

Ruin our perceptions of cowardly lacky journalists will they?
Well we'll show them! We'll boycott their newspaper and...

Wait. Coffee just set in. Am I reading this article right?


Best,
