"It's raining outside?"
Today's journalist, rather than getting his butt out of his chair, would rather reach out to an agency and find an answer there, or invite two people to the studio, one of whom claims that the sun is shining outside and the other that it's raining. Which, by the way, is no longer the case today, because ONLY one (read – the right) party is invited today.
It used to be a joke, but today it is the stark reality of the total decline of journalism. Today's journalist is just CTRL+C and CTRL+V - a manual monkey who, if he has a sudden burst of "creativity", will invent (or have artificial intelligence do it for him) - a headline that will attract as many clicks as possible.
And if one of the "journalists" thought to open the celebratory PR book, God forbid read it... But why would they do that? How are they being paid for their opinion? Why does anyone require it from them? That's how they are taught in today's schools - just not any thinking - but let's call it "creativity", just not any own opinion - but we call it "freedom".
In short, the boss and the owner listen to each other and shit always falls down...
Done and on to the next article.
