Avoiding Their Responsibility In Favor of “Click Bait” by The Elephant's Child

The American press is so focused on what we are calling “click bait” or celebrity that they do not notice commentary from scholars or scientists or experts in one field or another, in favor of reporting what some has-been from Hollywood has to say, that it is a big choice in reporting. A recognizable name is favored over important ideas every time. Robert DeNiro is famous for something other than his usually foul mouth, but I cannot remember what, nor dredge up any reason why anything he has to say would be of interest.

This kind of emphasis is why President Trump refers to the “fake media” as well as why the media is so offended at his categorization. This is why we have to listen to the inane comments from AOC, but have to search out commentary from highly regarded climate scientists. I don’t care what anyone from Hollywood has to say about anything at all. I’ve pretty much given up any interest in movies because of their dumb politics. If I am in need of pure entertainment, I’ll look for old movies or movies from Britain. I have seen some notice that movie attendance is way off. They have only themselves to blame. I don’t post my opinions so much to complain, but for others who think the same way, to know that they are not alone.
