Why Journalism is Suffering From the YouTube Disease

Too many video “journalists” are watching too much YouTube and hoping for viral video clips like this one.  This is NOT journalism, but blatant trolling for a specific kind of sound bite.



  1. Good observation.

  2. It was bound to happen – that’s where the audience is it’s perceived. but it’s a good point.
