One of the sad things about contemporary journalism is that it actually matters very little. The world now is almost inured to the power of journalism. The best journalism would manage to outrage people. And people are less and less inclined to outrage.
The trick to making a story matter is that every now and then, somebody you care about has to go. If it’s somebody that you don’t care about, then it doesn’t really have – the stakes aren’t there. But if you do that every now and then, then the story matters to people. And there are actual stakes involved, emotional stakes.
