I've worked on media psych for a while. You know, you learn a lot about people by how they react to stories like this. Those who unleash a personal attack or lash out recklessly probably have deeper issues themselves, and are just trying to compensate for their insecurities in life. They get excited at the opportunity to bring someone in high standing down to their level or below. They act as if they're perfect, and have permission to attack people or a person just based on news. They fail to understand that the news is essentially enertainment in which the media personnel have a goal to profit from their business. Yes, people have to get thrown under the bus for them to profit. They (the media personnel) encourage a shallow and judgmental audience to accommodate their click bait and thus provide the gossip afterwards. The initial perspective of the target audience is always shallow, perhaps followed by a more critical viewpoint in general. Lastly, the most obvious thing I've learned from my studies is, it is so easy and automatic for the shallow and judgmental to criticize and attack the thing that they didn't do. (ex Those who haven't done Cocaine or hookers). however, if they've done it or something similar, then they will usually sympathize with the story or the individuals within the story. My reaction to this story: I have no reaction. It's just news. It doesn't tell me anything of real sustance about Mr Barber other than he is an accomplished athlete who may face a competition ban, and he is not perfect... but wait, none of us are.
