Journalism is dying & the world is getting dumb

For once Last Week Tonight is not funny… because it’s depressingly true.

I’ve been wondering why the world seems to have gone stupid lately.

In fact the answer has been right under my nose the whole time. Real journalism is slowly being eradicated, and there really doesn’t appear to be a solution that can stop its decline.

It will fall victim to the new economic reality of clicks=cash as content-consumers baulk at boring ugly truths that aren’t trending.

And before you say anything, yes okay – guilty as charged. We’re all just content creators now.
