We live in a world of clickbait news media
A wave of sensationalism and clickbait news is all around us, and ironically, it’s the most interesting real-news story in years.
The sad reality is that even mainstream, reliable news sources have embarked on their own digital, tabloid-like adventures. Many news institutions are publishing articles that sometimes read like unfinished mixtures of news and clickbait, just to grab our eyeballs.
Why is it so easy to miss or ignore this? Mostly, it’s just that we go easier on opinions we agree with overall.
