None of this was recent.  Several years ago.

It has become a disease Dwayne, a bad one.  Internet news is free but it still hasta make a living somehow.  So it sells ad space.  The advertisers can track how well their investment is working by noting which stories the users click on and how long they stay where the ads are visible.  They watch all of it.  So… news people note what sells.  It evolved from actual news into mostly political nothing-burgers and news of the weird.  They then learned to convince us that every little story has significance when in reality almost none of it does.
