Aviation the media and me

This is in JetBlast for a reason As for aviation content - truly sorry!

With reference to the following article;

https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/wor...le-experts-say

I have several comments (complaints)
1. Why the hell have the media begun creating videos with snippets of text of the news article to terrible music and slowly zoomed in pictures which means you essentially "read" the article but much more slowly
2. The media (i.e. all of them) is partly to blame for confusion (their accuracy of data of their reporting is ridiculously poor). Poorly written and regurgitated articles leaving readers more confused or misinformed than ever

I think I need to stop reading the news, or watching the news, I will probably end up a little smarter.

I see the article ok (?). I think the OP should add internet forums to their 'no read list' too!

Not to mention making viewers think that Boeing builds aircraft with banana-shaped fuselages.

Because they have taken to catering to the lowest common denominator.
