Curios Rat 2.0

These websites perpetuate a myth that they are well-informed, knowledgable news outlets that tell the world what it needs to know. What I’ve learned, however, is just the opposite: they’re ad-driven FUD machines that run on pageviews stolen from attention-deficient readers who would rather digest a shocking headline on a digital tabloid than read thoughtful commentary provided on an actual news site.

Im sick of the title baiting, sourceless & senseless rumours, one-eyed bias with no consideration of the other, dumbing down the technical details, and treating the tech startup scene like a reality TV show.
