self-censorship

Posted to Poetry and Politics




The thing with people not printing things because they aren't economical is essentially how news has always worked, so long as there's been any kind of mass-media. The formula of close-to-free content given away with lots of paid advertising has been in effect since the very, very early days of journalism. We never do hear everything. Although, I do wonder: why are we hearing so much about the girl kidnapped from her home in Utah?
