two new forms of provocative content: kiss-and-tell memoirs and saucy investigations
Very interesting article about the role and history of journalism. Personally, I hate most TV news reporting. There is so much focus on showcasing people's emotional states, or exposing some "dark secrets". Local news here are 95% police reports. It's emotional porn pretending to be journalism, and it's lacking any integrity and respect for its audience.
News should be about informing people about things that matter, about making the world a smaller place that makes more sense, and about bringing people together.
