I was just looking at the articles on Yahoo, they are famous in a bad way for linking, and saw a headline about Butch Harmon saying when Tiger will return. I clicked on below


http://abcnews.go.com/Sports/harmon-crazy-tiger-play/story?id=51549681

Look at the time stamp. It is from today but is an article from at least 7 years ago. WTF is going on with the amateur hour of journalism?

Well, to be fair, they could of pulled up a "Tiger Story" from 7 years ago and it would of been the same old thing. Just saying.

But your question is a good one. What's wrong with journalism? Damn near everything. I can go from bias to bias, to about 6 companies own all the outlets. Most of what we get now is political rhetoric and half the other stuff that's real "news" you really got to check out for a while to see if its accurate. Most people don't even realize the "nuance" of crap we get....some is outright propaganda.

"well, I could of been an actor, but I wound up here
I just have to look good , I don't have to be clear
Come and whisper in my ear
Give us dirty laundry"

Pretty prophetic, for a bunch of rock stars. But that's where we are at. When I hear people recite crap from the "News" like they are "informed"......its a real hoot.

I had to learn "ethics" taking journalism............are you freaking kidding me?

journalism has turned into click bait, for advertising revenue

Yahoo is mostly linkism (to other articles and opinion pieces)
