Welcome to PPC Journalism

Why report a story with in-depth analysis and words of wisdom viewpoint when you can add "clicks" to the website and drive the advertising rates (Pay per click) higher and higher?

See: for a number of examples of this style of online journalism.

This example was teased on Twitter as a look at the various sports labor disputes over the years. Instead of being sent to a story - I was surprised to see the gallery.

Another example of the dumbing down of America via the Internet.
