Okay. If we are talking about a billion views, a la Gangnam Style, it's justifiable to have such a story dominate the entertainment sections of any paper, globally.
Several million views? Perhaps still worth some prominent coverage locally, (inside pages of the entertainment section, don't you think?).
But a mere 200,000 views?
And we have a front page teaser, followed by a more substantial article that significantly amplifies the irrelevancies.
How can such a low number of views in social media be the news peg, in mainstream media?
If a prominent Kenyan politician takes a tumble, while addressing a public gathering, that agreeably, is newsworthy.
Very disagreeable, in my opinion, is to purport it's in the public's interest to know that:
"The incident elicited comments, with more than 50 likes and only 4 dislikes..."Somebody enlighten me... we care about that because?
What's buzzing in social media circles, can be fuzzy in the mainstream media.
