Just this week! All highly-shareable, sticky web content! It’s almost as if we’ve created an ecosystem that, by its very nature, rewards viral marketers, liars and scumbags, at the expense of anyone with a shred of decency.
I mean, can you imagine if people started just making stuff up about politicians, using the same media ecosystem that surfaced and made viral all three of these stories? We would be ungovernable! Thank god no one has thought of that, though.
