Vanity Fair, has some bullshit trying to use a brain cell to figure out why garbage like Vox, Vice, and BuzzFeed aren’t working:
“EVERYONE’S FOR SALE”: A GENERATION OF DIGITAL-MEDIA DARLINGS PREPARES FOR A FRIGID WINTER
Vice, Vox, and BuzzFeed, among other companies that once heralded the dawn of a new media age, are now grappling with decidedly old-media problems.
Because they produced bullshit fairytales for cowards. They had nothing real to offer. They snarked, and produced garbage that was worse than what traditional bullshitters were puking out.
The motherfuckery seemed hip to shut-in nerds and reality deniers, but they offered no substance.
The played it safe, and the reason garbage like BuzzFeed could get dumbass investors to give them Benjamins during funding rounds.
And investors are timid wankers who look for safe.
They hate calculated risks because that requires brains, heart, balls/ovaries, and then take lunatic gambles instead.
BuzzFeed is fragmented bullshit, while Vice is sexist bullshit.
Vox is pathetic sophistry emo bullshit.
And not a single one of these smug bullshitters reinvented journalism. They didn’t improve it, or produce a single story of any value. They are the trailer park of the profession.
Because that would take guts, and none of these egotists have it.
These are journalism’s feral and neglected progeny, rooting around the profession’s dump and cobbling together whatever garbage they thought they should settle for.
And we wonder why journalism collapsed?
Vanity Fair should get a clue once in a while and stop churning out this kind of clueless garbage; it’s not journalism, either…
