How do you feel about lazy journalism?

In recent years, the fire has left journalism. It seems like most people are either complacent or corrupt. Magazines, online and otherwise, seem to be filled with senseless articles and overused concepts. I sometimes wonder if this is due to the widespread use of social media and such for spreading information? Are there any reliable and interesting places on the internet and in real life anymore?

Lazy journalism is very dangerous and can cause more harm than benefit. The internet has given a platform that has led to the rise of this lazy journalist. They really don't want to spend time and money to research and come up with genuine stories. Instead, they prefer gathering information from the internet. This should be discouraged as it is making genuine Journalists look bad.

You're right. A lot of articles in mainstream media are derivatives of interactions somewhere else on the internet. It really is a disgrace.

Idk, I feel like the best journalism is with the people who are going out of their way to report the real news. People on the streets, recording what's happening all over the world. I feel those are the real journalists. Journalists these days, imo, tend to add their opinions into the mix sometimes. The news shouldn't have a journalists opinions, it should state the facts so that the people can dissect it and go from there.

You've hit the nail right on the head. The journalist should be reporting events, not debating over them. I especially dislike the news channel debates in my country because they're mostly just the journalist screaming their opinion while a bunch of other people do the same. You don't get any information off of it but you definitely get a headache.
