Because news on the Internet is of such high quality
In an age of global upheaval and economic uncertainty, Yahoo.news makes sure I know that Kim Kardashian was flower bombed. Whew. Thank goodness I've been brought up to date. That reminds me of Chesterton's famous observation that journalism largely consists of saying 'Lord Jones is Dead' to people who never knew that Lord Jones was alive. Any notions that the Internet would heal the rot of modern journalism will be dispelled by a brief survey of most Internet news sources.
