    When the outrage machine is wrong

    The Chicago Cubs gave a signed baseball to a child after social media became outraged over the perceived wrongdoing of an adult fan, but the cameras only captured part of the story.
    It turns out, despite social media and earlier reports, the adult fan had already helped the boy get a baseball earlier in the game.

    Things aren't always what they seem, but the social media mob jumps to conclusions and tries, often succeeding, to ruin someone's life.
    I'm for defending all rights for everyone.

    Reminds me of this classic:
