Writing like the world


Are you familiar with the term yellow journalism? Here are some representative definitions of it:

Yellow journalism or the yellow press is a type of journalism that presents little or no legitimate well-researched news and instead uses eye-catching headlines to sell more newspapers.

Yellow journalism, in short, is biased opinion masquerading as objective fact. Moreover, the practice of yellow journalism involved sensationalism, distorted stories, and misleading images for the sole purpose of boosting newspaper sales and exciting public opinion.

Journalism that exploits, distorts, or exaggerates the news to create sensations and attract readers.

Doesn’t it seem the internet was almost tailor-made to serve this strategy? Isn’t it disappointing to see those who profess to be God’s people use the internet like this?
