We’ve created a news climate where people race to declare others dead.
Philosophy of Drawing asks why I think we’ve arrived at such a climate. Here is my response:
I we’ve achieved this climate because conversations and media move so quickly that news outlets have only two sustainable editorial models: move really fast or create amazing analysis. The audience for the former is larger and the latter requires more talent, so everyone prints first and asks questions later.
