eleison Posted January 4, 2018 Share Posted January 4, 2018 Vloggers, youtubers, etc. are this generations Lois Lane, Hunter Thompsons, Morley Safer, etc. Vlogger, youtubers, are this generations news reporters, war correspondences, magazine opinion pieces, etc... Just like their "dead tree media" counterparts, it's all about getting the "story" -- no matter how, boring, gruesome, etc. Keep the camera on and pointed to the action... or dead body. Get the story no matter what. Stay with the troop while there is a gun fight all around while being pinned down by Charle while helicopters are circling around. At no point in history has there been so much "reporting"; so much knowledge, and experiences shared to so many people. Everyone can now potentially be a reporter. Because of this, there is a lot more content. If people don't want to listen, don't want to read, don't want to see things that may offend them..... they can always turn off the TV, close the magazine cover, don't buy the newspaper -- OR in this generations vernacular, don't click on the link. Logan Paul didn't make 15/16 million people click on his video. These people wanted to see Logan Pauls videos. I don't click on Logan paul's video's because I'm not into his type of content. Not my cup of tea. I don't "invite" him into my "mind space" by not clicking on his stuff. The video about some dead body. Did I click on the link? Nope. I don't want to see/learn/know more about that type of stuff. I only care about really important stuff... Like consumer cameras, codexs, 4k60p, etc. You know, things that will feed my G.A.S. Because without G.A.S., the internet would be a more boring place -- for me at least. Dead bodies??? Japanese haunted forests??? Who cares about that sort of shiet!!!!
