Submission + - Girl kills herself over LHC fear mongering (dailymail.co.uk)

AnonChef writes: "

A teenage girl in central India killed herself after being traumatised by media reports that a 'Big Bang' experiment in Europe could bring about the end of the world, her father said. The 16-year old girl from the state of Madhya Pradesh drank pesticide and was rushed to the hospital but later died, police said.

So sad that the medias desire to sell a few more copies/adspots makes them spread this kind of fud.
I really think the medias has gone downhill ethically, but perhaps it's always been this bad and I'm only delusional."
