Warning. Comment section almost completely filled with people who totally missed the sarcasm and took the "Anti-Capitalist" byline WAY too seriously.

2:34 What they lied? They are only supposed to lie to their members, not to their advertisers. Honor amongst thieves.

We have Bill Clinton to thank for the state of journalism in the US. The Telecommunications Act of 1996 paved the way for media cross-ownership, which allowed large corporations to purchase and condense media outlets. The US went from hundreds of privately owned media companies to 6 companies owning all mainstream media. As a result, those very corporations began controlling the content delivered on their respective outlets to be corporate friendly and to push propaganda for capitalism and the military industrial complex. You want to save journalism? Get rid of the Telecommunications Act and support independent journalism until mainstream news is no longer owned and controlled by corporations.

YouTube definitely didn't have anything to do with this being on trending. I'm sure this is well deserved.

Ehh, I don't agree that the appetite for news is "insatiable". After about an hour a day, I'm done. I think it's the 24/7 news cycle that's killing journalism. There's simply not that much that's actually newsworthy in a 24 hour period, so 90% of what you see on news sites is either irrelevant news or opinion pieces - news sites just trying to fill space on their home pages.

I tapped on this video and will never watch it, just to make fun of the pose she is doing with her hands on her hips. Ha ha.

*THIS IS PAID PROMOTION, NOT TRENDING*
#13...? REALLY...? With not even 180k views after a FULL DAY ON THE TRENDING PAGE. AND with a 20%+ dislike. WHY IS THIS HERE? Because THEY PAY for it. Stop callling it "Trending" and call it what it is- "Promoted".

Journalism is dying because people the corporate media will never challenge power centers in this country, namely other corporations and the ultra wealthy. Instead we get garbage "horse race" coverage of politics and culture. They're happy to cover the horse race, unwilling to investigate why in 2019 we still beat horses to death making them run in circles to feed the nation's gambling addiction. (It's a metaphor, people)

_We are forcing the lifeblood of democracy to rely on the whims of power-hungry zillionaires._

Um, that was a problem throughout the 19th century and continues to this very day. Or do you think Pulitzer and Hearst were dedicated to wealth equality?
