Maybe I am losing my mind but here lately, I read the news online and it seems like the last paragraph was not the end of the article..as if there was a concluding paragraph that was intentionally omitted.

I am noticing this on EVERY article that I read from local, national and international news sources. Some even from sports and entertainment news sites.

Like is that it? What were the historical inaccuracies?!

What is the reasoning for the dangling articles?

There are fewer news sources providing less news on the internet than 20 years ago.

People ignore the truth.

If it doesn't conform to the priority of sex or money, people don't want to be reminded how close they are to dying and going to hell.

Yes but...its like there is a word number limit or something. The articles are rather abbreviated, as if the editor said, "Just hurry up and finish!" and voila.

I can find more but many times, its the crap in my G00gle home page...I have no idea why my algorithym (sp) gives me such trash articles to read.

But damned if I don't swipe to read and its a half-assed article.

Even if its a link to my local newspaper site...the articles are incomplete.

Starting to wonder if a human is even writing them any more.

Trust me. I am.

They are publishing incomplete articles everywhere.

I thought it was a paywall issue as I am used to seeing that on mainstream sites like Wall Street Journal or Forbes.

What I am referring to is on ANY damned industry news, entertainment news, sports news site with no paywalls.

Prime example, just today I was reading about how Bozos is underpaying truckers hauling Amashyt Prime deliveries in their trailers and it just cut off mid article with a fuck ton of bullshit ads with links to fake news articles on spam links.

I don't care to add the Ad-Blocker apps because that doesn't make a difference. I gather the articles are designed to direct your attention to the fake news at the bottom?!

They all have ADHD and forget what they were doing so they move on to lunch. It's all about the page click count so they want you to click to the next short news item.
