1. They don't know.
2. They don't know.

This is all about a startup outfit from Philly, with backing from the bloated corporation known as Gannett, experimenting with something they think might replace conventional journalism and hopefully (maybe) produce profits. They think this MIGHT be something young people who are hung up on social media, might find attractive.

To assume most young people are so shallow as to buy into such a stereotype is offensive to them and to anyone who respects journalism.

As for silly Lexi, she's a former PG reporter who wants to be seen as being "on the cutting edge," in spite of the fact nothing she did at the PG stood out from the pack. Her work there was sufficiently undistinguished that she could have passed muster at the Trib or BCT.

Journalism in the 21st Century is changing. But there's no way this (or UpGruv) is its future.
