In 2015, the entertainment industry is full of what seems like more frivolity than ever.
As a journalist, I know firsthand that sensationalism can hijack even the sincerest vision for a story. It is not unusual for me to see a great job that requires the applicant to have a specific look or 100,000 followers. The goal of content is not always how it will convey a message or open someone up to a new perspective. Unfortunately, the goal is often how many clicks/ views/ shares/ likes/ comments the article will get.
