I think I read that a lot of authors of articles don't actually write the headline. A separate person has the sole job of finding the right words to make people more interested in reading the article.

It's who you are, own it. Don't act like it's some huge insult when people notice and state the fact.

If I was a ratfucker I wouldn't get all misty eyed and act offended when someone called me one. I'd tip my cap and look for the next rat.
Dude landed an historic interview from one of the most notoriously reclusive icons of 90ís popular music, and it was the goat juiciest af pumpkins-related interview any of us had seen in probably ever

He may visibly rely on the clickrev, but this instance alone proves his journalistic cred, imo

Buttcanon = legend

The catharsis of reading that frikein D’arcy interview with all of u on here was nearly as sweet as those early pics of james touchin big willie on his shoulder, that time they played mayo at the plainsong and we all died together

And now mr b cannon has his very own legend of gettin big willie attacked, to add to his legend of bartcannon

Agreed - trolling Billy to this degree makes you a Netphorian legend 4 lyfe... I didn't think there was a level for Assartillery beyond posting the D'arcy texts, but here we are.

needless to say, it is foul as hell and immature of billy to go after someone so personally in front of thousands of people who read his stories, but I can't help like feeling that some justice has been served considering that I feel what brett is writing is the lowest of the low junk tabloid journalism.
and it wouldn't matter if brett didn't have any influence and people weren't reading his shit, but they obviously do, since he's still going right at it.
whenever you actually google search smashing pumpkins, billy corgan, d'arcy or any related term (or any 90s band whatsoever) it won't take long for you to run into one of his articles. then you end up on his site, and quickly realize that it's complete shit.
the thing is, most people won't actually click the on the articles or go to the site. people take whatever is in the headline for granted and go on with their lives. you're feeding people bullshit and you don't feel the least bit guilty, well then I feel like you deserve to get called out for it.
l'll just refer to this thread for examples: http://forums.netphoria.org/showthread.php?t=187425

Oh, and before someone comes in and say "duh its 2019 all other media outlets use clickbait", yeah - no, they are nowhere near this level. actual news websites, that aren't run by one dude who writes all the articles from his phone, have actual dozens of journalists working who at least know how to use and make their clickbait not so obvious, and not reuse and recycle braindead titles. not to mention the fact that most news outlets (outside of literal junk level tabloids) aren't composed of nearly 100% non-news worthy trash like altnation is.

How is scoring an interview with D'arcy and an expose of the internal workings of the band "low junk tabloid journalism"?

Sure it's split into bite-size articles with clickbait headlines, but I don't think Buttcannon was ever aiming for a Pullitzer. He's making a living same as anyone, Corgan ought to respect that.

Very humble, no Buttcannon or Alt Nation in the headline:
