Nosemonkey's EUtopia

In search of a European identity


Journalists “finding it easier to write a load of nonsense about something vaguely similar to their dayjobs than to go out and uncovering genuine news stories” shocker! Or, in other words, a study has found that

“blogging has received disproportionate media coverage and the whole idea of citizen journalism is overhyped”

Next month, more shock new findings about the way the media operates: Journalists “less likely to check facts or make much effort near to deadline”; Comment pieces “far easier to write than proper news, and infinitely better paid”; and Newspapers “desperate to fill space with any old pap that might get a few suckers to buy the sodding things and keep their ABC figures high enough to charge advertisers rates that’ll allow a profit”.
