upi 100 years of journalistic excellence [1]

This is what UPI’s 100 years of journalistic excellence has pathetically come down to.

4 of its top stories are about misbehaving celebrities. The other is about whether a naked photo that went viral was staged.

4 of its top stories are about naked people

2 of its top stories contradict each other. And considering that the 5th story could have been fact-checked by just watching the video in question, that means UPI ran a story for hits without even watching the video.

3 of the stories are not even about Miley Cyrus, they’re about celebrity reactions to her routine.

This is what the news media is now. Journalism is dead in the mainstream media. It lives on only outside it.

(note, the logo position was shifted and logo text was increased in size for this picture, but no new elements were added.)
