    “Too lazy to apply to become a commenter–particularly from work–but that linked article on the Weber grills strikes me as a version of the fake news the big evil corporations have been passing off to the local news broadcasts. Dunno if they’re nationwide, but I’ve seen *lots* of Weber TV ads lately basically telling the same story. I’m sure Weber grills are just fine, but c’mon, is it “news”?”
