Clickbait is still here.
Kotaku occasionally posts good articles, but more often posts inflammatory or outright false BS.
RockPaperShotgun has gone to shít.
The latest controversy over the new dave chapelle comedy special on netflix shows how a lot of these media companies are just totally disconnected from the general public as a whole.
Theres a lot crap out there that tries to influence people rather than just reporting stuff. Im totally fine with a journalist saying he has a bias and an opinion but there seems to be a trend where they leave no room for other opinions.
Other opinions are framed as being hateful etc
Even traditional media has gone to crap,just look at the english papers regarding brexit,a lot of what they have said is rubbish and some of it is just plain lies,but their looking to influence people rather than giving them the facts.
Its getting harder and harder to seperate all the BS from whats actually going on in the real world.
