ISSUES: Headlines Causing a Commotion

A news outlet caused quite a stir with its report that Miami-Dade County is giving up on banning texting and driving and instead plans to launch millennial focused texting lanes complete with side bumpers. The news outlet was Miami’s own satirical website “The Plantain” and at least one local radio station fell for the bit. In a time when people lead busy lives, do we need this type of journalism to help people lighten up?
