One particular gratification the public can enjoy by sharing access to the development and launch of a robust “all things STUPID about the news” monitoring and censuring platform is that they can collectively seek out and discover some of the news industry’s darkest secrets, perhaps in the shadows of John Swinton’s surprising truth. It will be unexpectedly fun. An illuminating and venturesome experience that its user base can appreciate for many years to come.
How is it that mainstream media knows so much about the public by utilizing its own investigative tools, or acquiring citizens’ personal data from unethical corporations and double-dealing institutions that sell it to the media like candy, while citizens and/or the public at large know little about the media’s dark secrets and the people behind them? Why should the media be allowed to hide its darkest secrets while intruding into the lives of people at its own discretion?
“Where people go to censure the news.” It will help the news industry aggressively police itself.
