Twitter, now X, was once a useful site for breaking news. The Baltimore bridge collapse shows those days are long gone.

    Yea, you can’t just read the news and go huh. anymore, because the news is no longer “this is what happened.” Now it’s “OMG YOU WON’T BELIEVE THIS YOU’RE GONNA HATE THAT this happened AND EVERYONE IS PISSED”

      Actually it’s really not at all. You’re probably just thinking about Reddit/lemmy/twitter posts when you write that.

      Go on like NPR or C Span and actually read the news. It’s fine.

        The number of those news outlets is shrinking, though. It used to be that every city had a local paper with real news. Now they’re all part of a media conglomerate and do the bare minimum of actual journalism.

          support NPR and it’s journalism across the US. Support your local station. And support local papers (not ganett rags and conglomerates).
