As tiresome as "the person or news outlet says awful thing/internet outrage pileon/apology or non-apology" cycle can be (I think we can all agree to never talk about binders ever again), it is pretty glorious to see once-mighty founts of stupid news brought low by hashtags. A half day from publication to unpublication is pretty good, internet feminists. If only our hashtags could vote.
