“Under fire”. What it really means

After the ten thousandth headline on a web site that includes “under fire”, I’ve got to flush.

What a load of horseshit.

Anonymous trolls or some big-mouthed fourth-rate celebrity can result in someone being “under fire” for saying or doing something.

What the hell does it mean anyway? Fire?

A shame that the brevity of headlines doesn’t allow the headline most deserved:

“Anonymous troll bitches about something you said and we have blown it way out of proportion so we can get more hits on our website.”
