The mainstream media is fighting for relevance

With the recent events surrounding PewDiePie and the media now dog-piling him, and trying to smear and end his career as a famous YouTuber. And without sounding too much like a tinfoil loving conspiracy theorist, it does seem like a coordinated attack on his person and career by the media. Carefully crafting a narrative that he is a hateful, racist, anti-semite who is influencing millions of his fans to do exactly the same. And the reason for this? Because recently he as been rather critical of the media and how they are lying slanderous sacks of shit. Unlike The Wall Street Journal and Wired, PewDiePie has a far larger platform than those two publications combined and a platform that watches and listens to what he has to say. While traditional print media and online publications are struggling to stay relevant with their shitty clickbait articles.


And the reason for the coordinated attacks against PewDiePie? Firstly: Because journalists are afraid of YouTubers like PewDiePie and e-celebrities because they have now more pull and influence over the people who follow them. They are now the guys and girls the average Joe on the internet goes to for the news and the truth, totally bypassing the corrupt media. And secondly: It is about the money,  PewDiePie net worth is $78 million. Most of these journalists and publications won’t see that amount of money in their lifetime. And unlike what the journalists and the sheep who mindlessly follow them think. They (the journalists) aren’t guardians of the public good and defenders of what is morally right or wrong, they don’t stand for truth or freedom like they want us to think. They are just people with a job.

[Editorial Note:] Journalists needs to write stories on a regular basis, ones that will please their bosses and make them money. It is no longer about reporting the truth. This will also be my last post regarding the entire issue, as I have pretty much said what I wanted to say.
