VGChartz’s Lee Mehr: “Journalism is organized gossip.” Edward Eggleston (American historian & novelist).

Who knew the vacuum seal on century-old quotes could be so reliable? Its strange to think back on enthusiast press actually enthused about new titles and picking an artists brain without the opportune outrage-porn against provocative figures; from shielding against legal busybodies pinning societal ills on games to crafting their own daggers to backstab whenever it seems justified. This figurative autopsy focuses on the decomposed corpse of former Hogwarts Legacy senior producer Troy Leavitt. Though the breaking news and the responses are quite old by internet standards, I think there’s value to be gained in assessing what amounts to yellow journalism and contemplating its potential consequences.”
