Watching the collapse of rot from the Sparrow's Nest.

France 24 is a bullshit news agency, and some of their articles adhere to the old Establishment rules, making them comical.

Like how Canada is “desperate” to fill 400,000+ jobs.

No, we are losing jobs left and right here. It is frightening how fast and furious the bloodletting has been here, and how many well-groomed beggars we have in “good areas” these days.

And how television news is “holding its ground”.

I wouldn’t bet on that, either.

The Winter of Discontent is here. Stalwarts such as the Right-leaning Weekly Standard are in serious trouble.

The Drudge Report is probably the only newsy out there that is still viable, and there are no end to the stories about the collapsing profession.

Drudge reminds me of Neil Gaiman’s The Endless character Death who is the one designated to close up everything the last news property bites the dust.

Speaking of television, it looks like the network that gives you 60 Minutes had an overlord that was destroying evidence of his bad deeds. Les Moonves was a naughty boy, but was the driving force of a media outlet.

How much of the facts do you think you know come from watching a network that allowed that kind of garbage to happen?

The rot is collapsing all around journalism. It was never dealt with when it was manageable, and now the piper is busy collecting what it owed.

The Tacoma News Tribune is laying off 67 people. Mic is also going into the toilet. Thomson Reuters is letting go 3200 people over the next two years.

Any journalist want to lie in public and pretend the profession hasn’t collapsed?

Yes, there are those who think maybe because the Washington Post is saying it is hiring, there is hope.

Give it a few months, they will be slashing. This game is nothing new.

The Reality Deniers run journalism and gather news stories. If they were doctors, they would tell a terminally ill cancer patient there is hope because they still have a few normal cells left in their bodies, and fuck all the cancer growing.

Cowardice makes liars of an entire profession.

And as I watch from the Sparrow’s Nest, I see the starving predators go after each other in a frenzy.

And it is an ugly, pathetic sight…

Yes, the West are emotionally illiterate and conniving. That is the reason they are perpetually unhappy and uninformed.

The Wall Street Journal has this opinion piece:

America Is Addicted to Outrage. Is There a Cure?

A healthy society reserves anger for special occasions. Today taking offense has become a reflex.

No, they are not outraged.

They are emotionally illiterate, competitive, self-entitled, and conniving, and they are bored and ungrateful, as they are terrified.

That’s it. There is no genuine core for the antics, if you had a genuine press, they would tell people to go fuck themselves, and grow up.

But they can’t because they are too deluded and cowardly to speak the truth.

France 24, the kings of delusional thought have this knee-slapper:

How Trump's bashing of The New York Times and CNN has benefited all

Journalism hasn’t benefitted, you dumb motherfuckers: jobs are being lost, and news consumption continues to go down; so these tools do not know what the fuck they are puking.

What is happening is nothing new. In the 1990s, journalism relied on “super-stories”, such as the personal life of Princess Diana, the trial of OJ Simpson, and the impeachment hearing of Bill Clinton to try to whip up emotional gossip-frenzy and ratings…and there would be a seeming spike in news consumption, but then, the crash, because the overall audiences were still abandoning them.

Because it doesn’t work.

But as outlets are as historically illiterate, they forget, or think people forget.

No, I remember.

Because I multi-literate.

But there is a dirty little secret Big Tech is trying to hide: that their numbers are far worse than people actually know.

Those so-called “Russian bots” were inflating the numbers of alleged users and followers, and they were getting rich from the exaggerated figures. Fake users, fake followers, it was all for show.

If the followers are bloated, then so is the outrage.

It is not real.

There is a study in psych where cockroaches racing ran faster if other cockroaches were watching.

And the cockroaches on the Internet are thumping their chests louder and harder for the same reason.

But don’t buy the hype. It’s all bullshit…
