Sorry reporters, but there’s always a single person who is responsible for a business or corporate action - it’s not the admin who updated the spreadsheet, it’s whoever is in charge of the company, the department, the branch of government, etc. you want to make a difference? You better start naming them. Let them try to explain it away themselves instead of painting a “well there’s nothing we can do about it” scenario right from the jump. That just makes you complicit.

Why bother with investigative journalism when you can just have your reporter/AI vomit out some basic bullshit information instead? It might earn them the same amount of clicks either way, and it costs a lot less. In a way I think it’s partly down to people not valuing that kind of journalism enough to pay for it. If we leave them to resort to click-baiting to generate revenue, this is about the quality of journalism I think we can expect from them.
