Click Baiting

Everyone is starving for page views in an industry where a business model is slowly dying.

“Click bait journalism” will die regardless. Because there is only one direction for it to progress in order to achieve growth.

And where it must (will) progress, is not good. It is not “progressive” if the only direction it can progress is in a negative direction. The line had to be drawn somewhere, with someone, somehow.

No one wants to be the first person to draw that line, if one doesn’t already exist. Because it is just much easier to live day by day, and not think about the future.
