United we stand

Does anybody not have an opinion on United Airlines and the passenger taken off the plane against his will?
How many more days will we be talking about it?
I can't blame it on the media, when I and 98% of the internet-using public seized on this story yesterday. Few wanted the guy being dragged off the plane to be dragged through the mud, but when you make something a story, you get spin-off stories. The latter is kind of an unavoidable consequence of the former.
It does seem to me this new story, while not exactly what I wanted to read about the victim here, is in fact news. (Or at least what passes for "news" in the current clickbait age.)
