how some online journalists think about online journalism

"On journalism school: “I’d say don’t bother. Unless you’re learning how to craft the perfect story for the viral web, you’re probably not getting much out of that education.”

 

“The most important thing is having a good headline.”

 

And my favorite: “Nowadays it’s not important if a story’s real, the only thing that really matters is whether people click on it.”
