Many news organizations have seen their staffs reduced in this era of corporate-owned media. In order to address this and help them provide content every day using less resources, a collection of media companies have entered into a variety of agreements with the Republican Party, celebrities and others to “make news” each day that is identical to the previous day which allows the news media to re-use previous headlines and articles on a regular basis.
Here are some of the more familiar news headlines that can be run in the news every day:
“Tea Party House Rep. Makes Racially Offensive Statement”
“Miley Cyrus Does Something to Look Sleazy…Er…Grown Up”
“High Profile Trial Makes Many Question System of Justice”
“Is Hillary Running for President?”
“Mitch McConnell Filibusters Bill”
“Anthony Weiner, Sexting and Penises”
“Difficult Road Ahead for Israeli-Palestinian Peace Talks”
“House Republicans Vote to Repeal Obamacare”
“NSA Revealed to be Spying on Americans More Than Thought”
“Lindsay Lohan Arrested”
Thanks to the cooperation of celebrities, politicians and corporations, this more ecological, recycling method of events and journalism has made the news a more economical and sustainable resource. As the media corporations say so often, think green!
