I'm just a gigolo, and everywhere I go...
Truth 1, in defense of Kelly Rae Smith's release of the news of the Beck show, almost all major concert announcements have a specific release timing request by the promoter as to when the show is to be officially announced to the general public. Thus, the major local media outlets released the information at the same time (which you can easily see across the media landscape if you do a basic search). In fact, even Beck's own website didn't have the show listed as of the time of Kelly's post. No legitimate media outlet is going to risk getting taken off a the press release list by a promoter by releasing info prematurely. So your claim that it was announced everywhere "two days ago" seems absolutely baseless. So before you attack someone's integrity, why don't you get a clue on how the system works.
The title of an article is used to inform the reader what the subject matter is and/or to get them to read it. The use of "Watermelongate" isn't "prejudicial" at all. It's simply a shorter way to say "The AMHS Football Team Watermelon Controversy." Sapakoff's piece uses Watermelongate in its headline as well, and his opinion and viewpoint varies from Stephanie's greatly. The only person who sees prejudice is that headline is YOU.
Ima, the "Watermelongate" moniker has been out there long before Stephanie referenced it. It has its own freakin' hashtag. In fact, in appeared in Gene Sapakoff's piece in the P&C back in October among others. Do your research. You're really making yourself look like an old man--one who has tunnel vision.

CIA Culinary Kid, while a little off topic, that is one of the funniest (and most accurate) posts I've read in a long time. Kudos.
