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

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)

Her job must be at stake and that’s why she is complaining about media shifting to social media rather than traditional journalism.

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.

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.

Lol there are some videos with millions of views in a couple days that don't even make it to trending, 200k and this is on trending. And people say it's the algorithm🤦‍♂️

_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?

I love it when the rich elite tell me how bad capitalism is. It’s the The Galactic Empire lecturing the galaxy on why having power is wrong.

Thing is most news TV channels just get their stories from newspaper journalists and repeat them on air.
Without those journalists, the quality and reliability of the news will deteriorate.

It's already deteriorated a lot, making people not trust the news media as much as they used to.
