    I wish I had Photoshop skills...



    edit: just saw you used this in your game-thread J
    I saw your version on reddit... I think I prefer the Score's version though.

    Masai Ujiri; Raptors'Going to Die Trying' to Defend the Title..

    U gotta love Masai..let's go..
    I heard his quote on the radio. There's some dispute as to whether he meant ride who we have and see what happens or go for it in trade. I get the sense he feels a great debt to Marc, Serge and Kyle and he'll go down with the ship with them.

    Well, I mean, the story I posted evaluates itself. It baldly states something to be true in the headline and then in the body of the article goes right on to say it genuinely has no idea what the fuck it's talking about. I think that's changed. That might've been the national enquirer before but NBC shouldn't be operating like that.

    One thing I know about the newspaper industry which has always baffled me is that the writer of the article doesn't write their own headline. The editor does. So an editor can eye it and either miss the point, or want something that -- SELLS MORE PAPERS.

    Speaking of punchy headlines... just saw this one...

    He turns late 1st rounders into all stars and undrafted player into recieving fmvp votes. I'm pretty sure that what they were talking about in the bible when they said "water into wine"

    Or, it has always been like this and it's only now with the explosion of media sources and the advent of the internet that people can now communicate in real time and people with direct knowledge of the actual stories can respond to them or people with expertise can evaluate them.... 25 years ago, there were zero sources for Raptors news. This story might have been the only Raptors story you'd read. How would you be able to evaluate it if you didn't have all the information you have now?
    Meh, "we've bypassed the gatekeepers!" is a very 2011 take on social media. It's now an official clusterf*ck that's being manipulated by for-profit corporations who will do anything to get you to click something or buy something, political agents like Mike Cernovitch who want to spread ideologies without anyone realizing what's happening - all you know is some random crap about Hillary's pneumonia is trending on Twitter, and foreign governments who want to eff up your current election like a digital Bay of Pigs. Then there's a bunch of kids like golden's farting on YouTube. Enter legacy journalism throwing shat at the wall to try to keep up with all the clickbait after laying off 2/3 of their journalists and most of their editorial staff. Out of all this you get garbage like that NBC "article."

    I love the internet but honestly it's a disaster re: information sharing and the spread of ideas. It's the wild west right now but without a Walker, Texas Ranger anywhere in sight. It'll probably all shake out eventually, once half of us have become flat earthers and the other half died of polio after refusing to get vaccinated.

    No, it wasn't always like this. In the past, monetization of advertising revenue was controlled by a select few media outlets. The moguls created media content and had semi-exclusive access to the events and the sources.

    Now, my 9 year-old son can make money from advertisers by putting up a video of him and his buddies having a farting contest on YouTube. That's a tectonic shift. Democratization and equal access doesn't always lead to better results.
    Maybe the networks overestimated their population. Farts sell, thats just a golden rule.

    Exactly. Trying to keep up with Twitter, Stephen A shouting on YouTube, and Facebook memes for idiots. Not enough time for traditional journalism, have to throw content out there and get your clicks or get left behind. (Happening anyway.)

    Blame Google Ads and the like. The easy monetization of clicks has let this genie out of the bottle.

    Amazing journalism...

    https://nba.nbcsports.com/2019/12/16...es-for-knicks/

    This is the headline: Rumor: Raptors want two first-round picks as compensation if Masai Ujiri leaves for Knicks.

    The article then goes on to say how they have no idea if Toronto wants anything or is interested in anything or would ever consider anything... and how it’s entirely speculation based on some entirely unrelated conversations someone once had in the past about another executive on another team.

    I mean.... jesus NBC... you’re making Trump look good when you write shit like this, and that’s no small feat.

    The state of American Journalism.
    Way to go 😎
    It's past irresponsible journalism.
