The Internet never sleeps. The Internet never goes on vacation. If a writer isn’t constantly producing content, he or she must be thinking of what to come up with next, which frequently happens by reading other writers on the Internet and responding to the content that they’ve generated.
Todays Highlights Include:
Vice writes about the proper firearm to carry in a woman’s vagina.
Buzzfeed GIF’s away its journalistic integrity (sometimes to hilariously brilliant effect,) with something regarding Lauren Conrad and Egypt.
Brooklyn media responds to all other written comment with sardonic dismay, complaining that the majority written is either irrelevant cultural drivel, whether or not the “hipster” still exists, and whats so uncool is now cool again. ( I will still wear skinny jeans until they are torn from my body and thrown into a fire in effigy)
Perhaps there are too many writers. Perhaps journalism has taken on a new identity. Perhaps it is no longer the mass purveyor of public affairs, playing the role of a public service machinery in the dissemination and analysis of news and information. The shift in consumption means a shift in the who/what/why is being written. Participatory journalism has given everyone a voice.
I am well aware this very diatribe keeps the cog in the media machine going. The gaul to assume a subjective opinion should not only be read, but revered, and re-blogged en mass; is presumptuous at its kindest. The ego has beaten the First Amendment like a pinata at a 5 year olds birthday party.
