When you cease to investigate and report facts so that you can focus on repeating opinions found on social media sites, you are an opinion aggregator and not news. When your economic model is HuffPo’s make money off free submissions from users, you do not have reporters and are not news. User submitted pictures of cats is not news. PR agency text ads are not news. Celebrity nose jobs are not news.
Pick up a phone, send an email or knock on the door of all the reporters that you fired several years ago and ask them to explain news to you.
