This is one of the most important pieces I’ve ever written. I posit that so-called news sites like Mothership, Allsingaporestuff and Mustsharenews practice dishonest and unethical clickbait journalism. Instead of doing the hard work of uncovering and reporting news, they hop on what’s viral and recycle them into “news”.
The result is a distraction of the masses from matters that are truly important and a dumbing down of quality journalism. I know most reading this likely consume news from the mentioned sites. Feel free to disagree and critique, keen to hear any opposing views.
