"Sorry to be blunt about this - but there are bigger stories in the world." - sure, there are, but...
"ebola" - not so relevant to a tech news site unless it mutates into a computer virus.
"death of bees" - ditto above.
"global warming" - been covered here, the comments make for great reading.
"ISIS" - isn't that just called "IS" now?
"Justin Beiber" - that smashing noise you can hear is your argument flailing in agony before it dies. He will never ever be an important story... unless he catches Ebola and infects IS(IS) with it while being stung by a horde of bees.
"that new Renault Twingo III" - might turn up here if it has some interesting tech onboard.
"the new Star Wars film" - ANOTHER? Bloody hell...
"Christina Hendricks" - [google-google] Meh, not my type.
"Windows 10 (maybe)" - covered here. I liked the reasoning for skipping Windows 9.
"Yosemite" - oh God, this isn't another volcano that's going to blow up, is it?
"Smashing up shit ‘cos you’re a small minded baby who’d rather destroy than create just isn’t worth the column inches." - maybe not column inches, but certainly YouTube storage. There's no shortage of people doing dumb things for the lulz, like objects-in-the-microwave and such. Is it idiotic? Hell yes. Look at what passes on Twitter, Facebook, etc. It is an awful lot of "morons doing stuff for other morons to laugh at". That's just how it is. (Pathetic, isn't it?)
Though, if you took care to read the story, the column inches (in whatever context that might have on a website) were not about the bloke bending his phone, but about Apple's "WAH!" reaction to the bloke bending his phone.
