Media =/= Journalism

Investigative journalism doesn't really exist anymore either. It's not profitable - it costs too much money to get somebody in the field for a few months to get a story. It makes much more business sense to have your writers sit at the computer and write a story. If it doesn't have a clickbait title, it won't make money.

Yeah, who needs that when we can just rip useful thoughts off of social media... and get our investigations done by people on social media... and get our headlines from the campaigns we want to support, and get our photographs from the campaigns we want to support, and get our money from the campaigns we're paid to support, and hire our staff from the campaigns we want to support?

Now all we need to do is organize it into a long stream of text and get some guy who can read to say it while wearing a tie.
