Good points made by Hasan Minhaj on Patriot Act about the current state of the news industry:

Think about where you get your information. Between cable news, Facebook, Twitter and Whatsapp. We are living in the golden age of nonsense.

The business model of “breaking the news” all the time has definitely broken the news industry. A twitter comment is now considered breaking news. This is insane. I wonder how much longer this model can sustain itself. People clearly yearn for something different, away from a 24h-cycle of non-stop sensationalism.

And when good journalism disappears, you know what’s gonna fill that vacuum? Russian bots and bullshit like this.

I think we’ve already crossed that line a while ago.
