The journalist to end all journalists

I was talking with a friend and she reminded me of a famous article that was wildly popular a few summers ago so I thought I'd present to you the best journalist in the world despite it being a bit late!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  15. And what the editor is thinking

    ReplyDelete

  17. Am I the only who actually clicked on the actual articles because the comment ratings were too high for such an irrelevant articles? Sure, the first one had a few comments--little to no "thumbs up" or "thumbs down" on them however---but looool, the second has TWO comments with no negatives or positives.

    Netizenbuzz...are you trolling us?

  18. he just felt like talking about clouds. Seems like we have a lot in common. lol

    ReplyDelete
  19. Dude, post it on Tumblr/Twitter/those websites to post pics
    No need to turn it to a news article...

    ReplyDelete
  20. It's not the first time I'm noticing this.

    ReplyDelete
  21. hmmm I wonder about that too!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I fucking see it. Netizens just don't understand true journalism lol

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'll take two of whatever he's having

    ReplyDelete
  24. I thought that was so cute and off beat and it actually cheered me up but as usual people only care about negativity.

    People are so unkind.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Well as a professional he should know better, but I don't know...
    The photos actually brightened up my day a little. Lol.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I think he needed to write something totally random just to get away from political topics. Like a stress reliever. Or, politics drove him mad.

    ReplyDelete
  27. People shouldn't be so harsh. Some journalists have to write what their company tells them, or they need to find certain content that appeals to the readership of the publication. You'd be surprised at how many hits/views stupid articles like this get, and at the end of the day, many journalists are writing for page views because that's how you make money.



    Just look at AllKPop. Some amazing new album could be reviewed or there could be a decent Op-Ed up, but the #1 most read story with thousands of comments will be something like "SUZY CHARMS FANS WITH A FRESH SELCA" or "DARA'S NEW PANTS ATTRACT ATTENTION."

    I had to get the caps of the best replies because the article is so old and Nate resets replies every once in a while.

    ReplyDelete
  29. it doesn't even look like Pikachu -_-

    ReplyDelete
  30. uhm... i post this kind of pictures when i see rainbows but in my FB page! its a shame i dont get paid for that... O__o

    ReplyDelete
  31. What kind of editor tells their staff journalists to write an article about a puppy-shaped cloud jumping over a building?


    Journalists will make articles over idols posting up selcas because that actually gets views and comments (because idols have fanbases).


    But... Um...


    CLOUDS? Not Rain's fans, but actual, literal clouds in the sky...


    Right...

  32. Dara's clothing always attract attention because her's are the weirdest, I mean did you see the ones with the stuffed animals?

    ReplyDelete
  33. LMFAO THIS IS THE BEST

    ReplyDelete
  34. Lol well judging by the comments and likes in the cloud article many people accessed it so the journalist won in the end

    ReplyDelete
  35. I could understand the journalist. He's saying an article is really as good as what u take out of it. And sometimes, even the news is quack. So chill a little. Life's not always about the nitty gritty. Sometimes it's about something as simple (and funny or fun) as what the clouds can mean to each person, pikachu n puppy fo him, something else to another person. I could be wrong, it's probably not what he meant at all, but that MY take on it.

  36. lmfao i love this guy

  37. This reporter managed to get so many views for posting an article that doesn't take much effort to write, so I really doubt he'll be reprimanded for it because of the negative comments or meaningless(depends on how you see it) content. What most news websites and journalists want these days are just views, not respect for their work. It might sound disheartening, but it is reality after all.
