Instead of investigate reporters we now get people who look for "news" on social media.
I've personally witnessed this on more than one occasion. 'Seen examples of CTV News employees soliciting for people to interview (or even open-ended requests for story ideas) through social media because, y'know, if you're not on social media, you don't exist.
Cream-of-the-crap: CTV Kitchener now has a "top stories" recap segment near the end of its weeknight 6:00PM newscast, where they specifically mention which story has the most number of views on their website. Zero context, no relevance, just pure self-fulfilling sensationalism. Oh, but they include a scrolling clip of their website, which usually highlights an ad for something else owned by Bell. Yippee capitalism!
Hey CTV: I don't care which particular story is trending on your website during your obscenely short news cycle; just because some other dummies fell for your clickbait, that doesn't make me want to go read it, especially not after I just finished watching it on TV!!!
Focusing on the original topic, I've often wondered why CBC still calls their show "The National". Half the time, they have extensive reporting on current affairs in foreign countries... might as well call it "The International" instead.
