Even better than the article: some of the stupid comments below it.
I’m with Wales on this. There is no need for newspapers or pundits really. I haven’t watched TV news in over a year, and haven’t picked up a newspaper (unless it was thrown at me in the metro) in two years. I care not for some journalist’s opinion, just for the hardcore results or evidence, and from there I’ll come to my own conclusion.
I follow all the major news organizations on RSS or Twitter, but I do not read their Op-Eds. Just want to know what’s going on in the world (hence I read the same piece from multiple organizations).
And what will that fine gentleman do when the RSS and Twitter feeds are shut off, because nobody made money off them?
The above was followed with a bunch of "fuck off you moron" stuff......
that's the future of "news". It's all turning into "you're wrong, no you're wrong".
