This is exactly correct. YouTubers sometimes behave like bottom-feeders -- not all, but many of them do. Apple products are immensely popular and anything trashing Apple's latest products is a certified way to get a lot of views -- and because groupthink is so prevalent on the Internet, any attempt to debunk these popular YouTubers' ridiculous stress tests (on devices that were never meant to run those programs in the first place) is met with derision. It's actually comforting that the old heads over at MacRumors debunked the rubbish those people were propagating regarding the MBA. But sites like 9to5Mac that tend to be clickbait-y even during the best of times were also spreading those dubious stories.
