I think it serves the "talent" by demonstrating to execs. that they
possess the potential to grab a national headline...for whatever
reason.  Businesses with a national focus must need national
attention.  In the world of behavioral psych, however, this is a
classic example of reinforcing a negative behavior.  And any "101"
text will tell you that rewards are designed to, ultimately, increase
that behavior.  All that crap aside, a licensee that knowingly rewards
individuals for reckless actions should share in the damages.
