The problem with real news — and what we can do about it
Forget fake news, a poisonous term. Real news is an even bigger problem.
Rob Wijnberg Sep 12
Philosopher turned entrepreneur on a mission to redefine the news. Founder of The Correspondent, a journalism platform for #unbreakingnews.
This realization is what inspired me to found the Dutch journalism platform De Correspondent in 2013, promising to be “an antidote to the daily news grind” for its readers. So many people responded that we even set a world record in crowdfunding a news site. Today, we’re on the verge of launching The Correspondent, bringing unbreaking news to the United States and beyond.

"To start off with the sensational: news is generally that which is shocking, scandalous, or appalling enough to evoke comment. It often revolves around what’s most visible — one might even say explosive. That is why terrorist attacks are often news, says Guardian journalist Joris Luyendijk, but occupations of foreign lands are not."
Good god! Occupations of foreign lands were news for awhile. but unless you plan on just reporting the same shit day after day, at some point you need to move on and cover something that isn't the same as every other day.
Like a terrorist attack.
