Just because Deadspin THINKS they are doing something doesn’t mean they actually are. Putting aside my perceptions of Deadspin’s rather dubious powers of thought, I would like to point out that real journalists are out there & are continuing to pursue all the questions. Real investigation & reporting isn’t dead yet.
Deadspin’s tendency to deal in gossip & speculation in order to publish fastest & get readers isn’t anything new, either. It’s part of the same debate that’s been apart of the media world since the earliest days of Yellow Journalism. The internet, and social media specifically, just make the whole process faster.
People who care are going to read all of the more detailed pieces even with Deadspin continuing to blather. People who don’t care or don’t like ND would probably decide to have a negative view of Teo even without Deadspin driving the narrative.
Doesn’t make Deadspin any less sucky,or me any less angry at them, but let’s not give them any more power than they actually have. There’s still hope for the future.You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
