But well… they might say, only put documentaries and not such news articles behind a paywall.
Actually, I am not convinced people really switch from NYT to Breitbart or so (because of that). Likely they just live in their bubble already… 🤔
@ben @Petzlux Thank you SO MUCH. I had this same rant on Twitter DOT comb. News media is run in favor of accruing capital and advancing the interest of capital. Shithead reactionary media like Br**tb*rt know how to make social capital they accrue from chuds fungible into monetary capital. Regular news media sites that report the news (though if we're honest, not always very well) also have to serve capital but their content can't be too severe or it alienates everyone. They choose to pay a subscription.
So now we have a selfish payment system where you buy your own access and then can't do shit with that. The info could be spread better with a pay-it-forward model.
