Welcome to the March 16, 2015 edition of Outrage Watch, HitFix's (almost) daily rundown of all the things folks are peeved about in entertainment. Today's top story: why are fans of HBO's “The Jinx” slamming the New York Times?
SPOILERS TO FOLLOW
After the Grey Lady sent a “push notification” to subscribers of their smartphone app reporting that the subject of the HBO documentary series had seemingly confessed to three separate murders on the show's finale, viewers tweeted their outrage at having the episode “spoiled” by the newspaper.
As a West coast fan of The Jinx, I'd like to make a formal complaint against the New York Times app push notifications.
