At least three problems exist with today's news reporting:
- It's Recycled
While some news remains unpredictable, e.g. earthquakes, most news builds slowly over time. So we see the
same stories over and over and over....
- Too Many Trolls
Authors making blatant generalizations will be cheered by uncritical readers, while also guaranteeing that even
the slowest critics will be able to find at least one thing wrong with the article. The resulting "controversy" fuels
online forum participation and generates Adsense revenue for the site.
- Support instead of Illumination
The need for a concrete narrative position poisons many articles.
It turns out that reality often seems quite complicated, however reporters usually shy from exploring
relevant data and only use the data that was handed to them.
