The days of good press are gone. They found out they can make tons of money and thus now do it for such.
Even YouTuber's as you say fall to the fold. They may be good in the beginning and still may be 1000x better than the mainstream, but the bigger they get the more they fall.
I think this kind of attitude should be avoided.
It's easy to point the finger to someone else (the news media in this case) but I think we have our responsibilities as the audience as well.
The graph at 5:45 is quite explanatory, during mid-2000s people stopped reading newspapers and shifted to new media and free press. You simply can't expect to have good press if don't spend the proper time and money for it.Last edited by freebs2 - on 21 May 2018
