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.
