When we talk too much.
I listened to this while writing this post, try it while you read :o)
Another tarnished media. Who could say that they didn’t go looking for it? Let’s see. The insatiable thirst for the media to always produce “more more more” can only be matched by our unfulfilled appetite for ever “more more more” news. Keep up with me, we are in a vicious circle here and here’s why.
Let’s say you like to read to distract yourself during the time between two tasks. The only thing at your disposal (and only at your disposal) is the user manual for your brand new TV. Let’s say you’ve never known anything but user manuals. Obviously, you would find some satisfaction in escaping the boredom of passing time.
Now, imagine that day after day, you are being fed new content. Let’s start with an article about a subject that interests you (more than televisions). If you increase the pace at which content is delivered to you, you will soon have a hard time keeping up and you will soon arrive at a point where you will have to make choices based on the title, then on the subtitle and finally, the article will have the privilege of benefiting from you quickly reading its content.
This is the reality that journalists are confined to. Since the advent of real-time reading counters of websites, the unsustainable pressure to produce content that “sells” is at its peak (hopefully) and we will inevitably see more and more overflows of this kind in the coming years. When the quantity is no longer directly proportional to advertising revenues, the quality will take its place.
