A story about a transfer rumour or some loud mouth making things up gets more clicks than actually holding people to account. The public gets what the public wants. Not really. Rumours and loud mouths are cheaper as, basically, you can just repeat what has already been said. Hence why so much sports reporting is really just what someone has said in an open press conference. There's really no evidence that that style of reporting (and its associated programming, the phone in) are more popular. There really isn't. But they don't cost as much, can be done more quickly, and have their own easy-to-follow cycle. They also don't depend on access and/or not wanting to lose access - another big issue, in particular it seems for the RL media. 1 Build a man a fire, and he'll be warm for a day.
