Journalists, merchants of fear

I thought this story about anxiety would recycle some complaints about Big Pharma and psychiatry. Nope. As it turns out, we journalists are the ones who are profiting on the misery of our customers.

In other words, I feel a little less guilty about clicking on clickbait now. Cat videos are a little less likely to make people suicidal.
