You nailed it. If corporate media is broken, *this* is the chief way in which it's broken.
*Every* corporate media outlet and primetime TV broadcast should be hiring curatorial journalists whose job it is to simply *connect related stories released across a long period of time*.
PS/ We'll get there eventually. In the meantime, a whole generation of curatorial journalists will be attacked, belittled, lied about, discredited...all so that no one need admit we have too *much* (not too little) good journalism and the issue is none of it is being *connected*.
PS2/ This feed is followed by thousands of journalists/outlets from around the world; no one is confused anymore about what I do. I don't even think they question the need for it. What they question is whether they can or should *admit* the need for it, as it exposes a blindspot.
