If anything, the hive mind of twitter/reddit/any personalised media ever scares the shit out of me. Imagine you do/say something a little stupid and it becomes trending. Tens of thousands of people will start to shame you! I can’t take criticism from one person! Imagine how it would feel to not only feel hated by everyone ever and dragged into the spotlight against your will, but also to have future employers able to see that one bad or misconstrued joke.
Also, the role of journalists has consistently kept government honest and people still want to hear the opinions of people who have the time and money to research stuff for them.
