bogus web pages and misleading titles

there should be some kind of law against such as these

what really sucks to me is ESPN going along with it, not only allowing it, but having links to the page on the main ESPN site.

I've seen the Sidney Crosby "career is over" the most. Global even made the clickbait a news item:

I've seen that Drew Doughty stuff in news sites and I don't get how so called legit news organizations let this happen.

The other things that I hate are the 12 top ____ where you have to click on page after page to see anything. I no longer bother. 4 clicks to get to tip #1 usually.
