Interesting little development in [sports] media: Fox Sports, which was my go-to for sports reporting has fired all 20 of its writers (seems like a really small number...) to focus entirely on video. I noticed this a week ago when I went looking for commentary on the NBA draft (Philly had a big night...) and found no stories, only videos. Now the entire site (except for the scores) is just video clips of their commentary shows. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/arti...-writing-staff-to-invest-more-in-online-video Evidently, it is cheaper to chop and post the commentary videos from its sports talk shows than actual reporting -- and you can force people to watch ads before getting to your videos. The problem for me is that these commentary videos are less informative and more intentionally provocative -- they aren't really news. I guess I'll have to go back to ESPN....though they just got rid of a large number of reporters (print and TV personalities) as well. Or maybe USA Today....but I fear that this is the way media is moving in general.
