Business Insider Gives Their Opinion Followed By The Facts

Read this article.

I had a journalism course in college. This is the exact opposite format of what a story should look like according to my teacher in that course.

You can put your speculation at the end if you want to and you should qualify it as such. You don't put your half-baked assumptions and misunderstandings at the top and then proceed to lay out the facts of the matter. That's the way Pravda was written in the Soviet Union. Except the average Russian was well aware that Pravda was government propaganda.

The most important reason for anything masquerading as journalism nowadays is first to reach the right politicial conclusions (bolshevist hegemony on culture) before you then toss in a few facts from the real world which are nothing but window dressing to lend some credibility to the political ideology the article was written to promote.
