You may or may not have noticed, but the media industry is changing. In order to ensure a news site receives as much traffic as possible, outlets have begun publishing “human interest stories” to capture the masses’ attention.
While this is an intelligent business move for most publishers, it’s downright humiliating to the journalists who take their profession seriously. An individual who obviously clearly feels this way is anchor Simon McCoy.
Recently, McCoy was asked to report on a story about surfing dogs, and his disinterest in the topic is palpable. He nearly rolls his eyes while reading and delivering the dialogue.
And, the mirthless way he says “Top Dog” at the end will have you double over from laughing.

While positive news stories do need to be shared to add balance to the ceaseless bombardment of negativity, it’s disheartening that the nearly all outlets have to deliver “fluff” in order capture viewers’ attention.
