I consider it unscientific and unethical to label mere children "psychopathic". They cannot defend themselves, cannot even explain what pressures are being placed upon them in life.

As for not reading the whole article, I don't consider that important. If the media pick up on an article and disseminate ideas from it (such as that children may safely be branded psychopathic) then I have the right to object to the media's behavior.

(Don't nobody start telling me that I didn't use "media" grammatically above.)
