When you can block
Today, many people seem to be blocking the daily newspaper “The Sun”. Let’s see what this is all about. The Sun is one of the most popular British daily newspapers. Like most organisations and especially the media, it has taken both the internet and our beloved platform, Twitter, by storm.
The main criticism that it is receiving from its competitors is that it would be harmful to readers. Some people criticise it for being too vulgar, others for not respecting certain basic norms, others for promoting immoral ideologies, and so on.
If I were asked, I would say that the reason I would block a mass media outlet would be the following. The fact that they are victims of our insatiable thirst for new content, they got lost in a spiral of news dilution which makes it taste like…taste like…well, taste like nothing, precisely.
If it were possible to follow a piece of news by getting only the story developments, to be able to go back to the beginning of the news story to find out about the entire thing, the service would already be more interesting.
