Yahoo's 9/11 video lacks truth, respect for day of tragedy

Yahoo on Sept. 11 released a video on Facebook that advertised the opening of the new Cortlandt Street Subway Station at the World Trade Center in New York City.

In under one hour this video had 185,000 views and only 36 comments, with only six viewers realizing Yahoo’s mistake.

Reason for the season

If we imagine the holiday season in the form of dramatic structure, the days preceding Halloween are akin to the exposition, while immediately after would have to be the rapidly rising action.
