I can imagine the weekly meetings with the "journalists"
Boss: OK people, we have 136 contents to make today, but there's only 38 newses, 15 entertainments, 7 cat stories and maybe 10 more fluff pieces from the wire.
Journalist: But that's only 70 bits of content!? What do you expect us to do?
Boss: Don't care, get it done
Journalist: What do you want us to do though? Make stuff up? Copy Buzzfeed stories and headlines? Take outage notifications from an ISP and try and sensationalise it into a story? What about a 'news' article which is just literally me typing what I think the weather will be like today (Bonus! Get one piece of content for each main centre)... Maybe you want us to randomly repost comments from earlier articles as a story?
Boss: NOW you're getting it!!!
I wouldn't be at all surprised if this is very close to what happens...
