Sisyphean News Consumption

I still miss the TV news as it was. A run down of some important things that happened in the world today. It had a beginning and a clear end.

My kids will never know a world where you can finish the news.

There is no done.

Not in the news.

Or in information.

Or in media.

Infinitely scroll through an ever-growing amount of articles and listicles and articles that reference listicles and listicles about articles about listicles. It’s endless. And in the need to fill space and get people to watch, it’s also garbage.
