The thesis is pretty self-explanatory it seemed to me.

More demand for bad stories leads to perpetuity in creating those stories, and the public becomes as a result a victim of whoever is able to manipulate “demand” the best. To pretend like market demand is the sole arbiter of the story creation process is like, a fundamental misunderstanding of how the journalism industry works.

My point in illustrating that I had no degree to speak of is the notion of having to participate in a system rigged to work against you lest you provide maximum productivity. I’m unfortunately disabled and couldn’t fulfill those demands even if I wanted to. That’s the self-ascribed dirty hand Capitalism deals itself — it convinces everyone the system is working to their advantage, when in reality, the slightest deviation from the norm is well enough to set you on a path of professional stagnation.
