Round 1

Reviewer 1 Report

I still feel that the overall premise of this research is of limited value.It could well be saying more about what stories get picked up by the media for "click bait" (and the Frankenstein allusion suggests this). However the qualifications included have improved that a bit

Author Response

We thank you for your suggestions and constructive feedback. We will also try our best to conduct more useful investigations in the near future.

Reviewer 2 Report

My concerns have been addressed, if just minimally. Only my last comment has not been addressed sufficiently: Item 12 in the reference section is still incomplete (missing name of author, as well as date and place of publication). I provided all the data in my previous review and it is clearly stated on the website.
