Angry I'M CALLING YOU OUT - Alternative Nation's Brett Buchanan

Brett,
What the fuck dude. I worked in digital media for a decade, and this is the worst, most nonsensical, most unethical click-baity headline I have EVER seen. Explain to me, and everyone here, how in the FUCK does the content of the story relate to the headline in the SLIGHTEST? I mean honestly, it's like if Elton John said "Lady Gaga is a great talent" and you were to post the headline "ELTON JOHN REVEALS WHETHER HE THINKS LADA GAGA IS A WHORE." How do you sleep at night dude? You know your website is a laughing stock right? Jesus fuckin christ.

Take a shot every time the word "said" is used.

Wow, Alternative Press, can I be a music journalist? Forget the silly clickbait, this is seriously one of the most horribly written articles that I have ever read. On a plus side, it also gives me hope that I can be a music journalist if this article can featured on Alternative Press.

No offense to Brett, as I realize he sold out for lollipops and fancy-pants, but I have no doubt that I could write better articles than the ones that he's throwing up.

On the other hand, I realize it's gotta be time consuming to come up with content every day regarding bands who are just riding out the tail ends of their career. I mean, he's a good looking fellow in his 20's, I imagine he doesn't wanna be sitting in front of his computer all day sifting through countless radio interviews looking for stories and he's probably not raking in enough money to make it worthwhile to hire a staff. So I suppose he's stuck between a rock and a hard place in some regards.

With that said, I've noticed a lot of the headlines go beyond typical click-bait at this point. It's a risky strategy cause I imagine a lot of readers are just gonna move on once they get thoroughly annoyed.

Alternative Nation articles read like they're written by someone for who English is a second language, and one they haven't moderately learned yet. What's Brett's first language? There could be a lot that's getting confused in translation both ways - from when Brett hears some information and then when he puts it into English words.

You should hire someone to edit your articles, Brett.

and may the joy brought to each of them via their respective buttcannons be equal to the devastating disappointment felt by TuralyonW3 when realizing he would not, in fact, be finding out whether or not Howard Stern thought Billy Corgan was a terrible singer

How does it come that Buttcannon isn't even replying on his own threads anymore...?

Here’s a non-sensical headline, based on the content:

https://www.alternativenation.net/ra...ected-reunion/

It’s literally a lie.

He's talking about this, fool. I made it just for you, to celebrate all that you bring to this community. And this is the thanks that I get?
