Merely a shell of any genuine independent press, why many believe mainstream media is already dead:
Because not truly an independent press but a puppet press inundated with media bias, corrupt, and the fourth estate backed by dark institutional powers and investors, overall, profit-driven rather than possessing a moral commitment to the copious flow of authentic news stories, defamation lawsuits, [diversity, equity, and inclusion] failures, sensationalized news [yellow journalism], inordinate intrusive behavior [illicit investigative journalism], fake news [manufactured news], complicity and collusion with rogue governments and corrupt politicians, witchcraft news, bullying, rampant seductive journalism, cyber-stalking, checkbook journalism, malevolent impersonations, a cesspool of supporting TV commercials [doom and gloom], monopolized paid television commercials, incessant paid television commercials, new ventures that failed [one costing upwards of $300 million], the popularity of guerrilla journalism on large social media platforms, extortion, bad executive leadership, bribery [envelope journalism], intelligence gathering [human interactions, AI, and computer hacking], horrible slogans such as “The Most Trusted Name in News,” on behalf of the global public, “Uhsätin,” [a mutually evil, unorthodox, news monitoring and censuring service otherwise known as “all things STUPID about the news”], as well as other self-destructive behaviors, exploits, and compromising situations that perhaps contributed to the untimely demise of some major segments of America’s mainstream media. —Just a few things to consider.
