This is what happens when a media source can get free pictures, or people willing to do the job cheap so they can say they got published.
The buying (clicking) public demands sensationalism. It's hard for a newspaper to compete for the buyers' attention with all those silly journalistic restrictions such as sourcing, validation, and trying to deal in fact rather than hyped-up opinion and insinuation. Crowd-sourced, narcissistic, melodramatic, opinionated infotainment that draws hits to a website is the future of our news, because that's what pays the bills.
Well it's also what happens when people don't read newspapers anymore.
What about giving out the newspaper for free , reach larger audiences (who doesn't like freebies) then earn from ads ....
