Click Bait

For John, BLUFAnd yet we click.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

"No, Spooning Isn’t Sexist.  The Internet Is Just Broken."  Yes, that kind of spooning.
The author of an article declaring spooning (yes, the form of snuggling that many people enjoy) as sexist isn’t to blame for the terrible piece.  All of us are.
This is an article by Mr Ben Collins, in The Daily Beast.  It is about how interest in articles on the Internet is gauged, thus how advertising space is priced.  The current approach is that sex and controversy sell.

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
