This article written by Tobias Rose-Stockwell takes a comprehensive view of how news today is packaged and sold to the public. He addresses the emotional spin put into news and why we as consumers buy into it. He also addresses the impact that social media has played on news. He also discusses the "algorithmic war for our attention" that news feeds and advertisers use to control the flow of news. Although a opinion piece it is well thought out and presents a thoughtful perspective on today's news.
