Exclusive! Breaking News!! You Saw It Here First!

An Unsolicited Response by: Carlos Rodriquez for Junior Hollywood Reporter

How many times have we seen these headlines and click on them only to read news that is a week old.  Exclusive has come to mean everything everyone else reported weeks ago and you are just now catching up to copy other reports.
Breaking news!  President Abraham Lincoln Shot and killed. Well it might as well say that because some of the breaking news click bait is about that old. Not really but it is annoying as hell to see breaking news that everyone else reported on days ago.
If you want to be the first with a story put in the work and get that story but stop using click bait to draw people to your site with old news and rehashing to death what everyone else is posting.

Pet Peeve number 101.
