People are missing the point. Ahmed probably had phone calls from 70 American Lawyers who couldn't wait to fight off the other 69 lawyers in competition of greedy payoffs. The fantasy that money solves all problems in the USA if the right attention and press coverage is given. The "pluck a few examples out of the crowd". The system is so corrupt - and Ahmed actually is a legit prank against the corrupt (anti-individual, reactionary) system (of thinking of the society, terror and fear).

In general, people don't want to admit that learning isn't easy. That we aren't all done at age 22 and that life just halts for us and anybody who makes mistakes "isn't stupid".
Steve Jobs himself outright said that things were dumb because that's what sells:
“When you’re young, you look at television and think, There’s a conspiracy. The networks have conspired to dumb us down. But when you get a little older, you realize that’s not true. The networks are in business to give people exactly what they want. That’s a far more depressing thought. Conspiracy is optimistic! You can shoot the bastards! We can have a revolution! But the networks are really in business to give people what they want. It’s the truth.”

I don't think your idea makes him 'dead wrong" as in 100% wrong. It's just another layer on top of his idea.
Take away what he says about "selling news" and replace it with "selling iPhones" and the quote applies directly to his behavior.

It's mostly because they use it to support the patriarchilluminati myth.
So God isn't depicted as male? Buddha wasn't male? Jesus, Mohammad, not male? Pope isn't male? telling society all these rules and controlling people's lives?

The question is so vast and complicated to me that I prefer not not spend the time on it. I really think it's been done in big thick books better than I could post here. It's an emotional issue, and people tend to not want to face details - and instead appeal to quick-feels answers. I just don't view such issues in simple terms. Things like "treated" are real messy ideas.
