In some ways news is just spam. The sites are full of adds like spam. Sometimes the level of research that goes into the articles are about the same level, basically none. They have videos that auto-play that have nothing to do with the link you clicked on. If I built a site like that and shared it around I'd be chased off the internet. Basically news corps managed to get a monopoly on acceptable spam.

How come when a user tries to pass the same shit they'd be trolled out of the forums yet you see it all the time on the 'trending' pages even on Community.Win.
