The bad press doesnt advertise itself in the Easyjet magazine so at first glance people only see the 19k in 4 minutes nonsense. Then they're hooked and won't believe the bad press when they see it. Look at Baghdady, some guy gave him 50k AFTER being made aware of the bankruptcy and dishonest marketing.
That is kind of common point for many media... I mean what else will they write? A lot of smart people working under their knowledge and experience to earn money? People found nice opportunity for self-employment? That's just boring. Better to call the whole field as a scam.
