“John McAfee, the eccentric tech mogul who made his fortune developing antivirus software, was found dead in a jail cell near Barcelona on Wednesday, just hours after Spain’s National Court ruled that he was to be extradited to the United States.” The news of his death was first reported by El Pais, who said he died by suicide. (I’d love to see someone write a book on the media coverage of John Mcafee. He was clearly mentally ill. But clearly mentally ill people are rarely treated that way by the press. I’m guessing you can think of other examples.)
