In this week's issue, we feature an analysis of Internet clickbait by Scott A. Leadingham, director of education for the Society of Professional Journalists and editor of its magazine, Quill.
Leadingham calls out everyone from CNN, KREM, the Spokesman-Review, even our own "Cat Friday" blog, but he gives particular attention to the Internet's greatest delivery system of viral content: Buzzfeed. And now along comes The Wolf of Buzzfeed, a spot-on parody of The Wolf of Wall Street trailer and all the soullessness that particular film highlighted. Enjoy!
