Lately I've been wondering when the next completely inaccurate health news story was going to break, and today it's finally here. You see, it's been a while since the popular news media reported that chocolate is good for you, or coffee has wonder-drug potential, or that smoking pot really isn't so bad. Today, being overweight can actually be good for you!
By now, you've probably heard of this a**hole who, when he was told he had tuberculosis, decided to go on his honeymoon anyway, putting potentially thousands of people at risk for contracting the disease. As the story unfolded, he gave all sorts of "reasons" why it wasn't his fault, that no one forced him to not go, and he pointed fingers at everyone else, in typical lawyer fashion.
