Perhaps part of The Incline's rationale is that since young peoples' attention and time are so fragmented, even those who might be interested in reading conventional journalism and news stories are unlikely to do so, therefore, The Incline will try to hook them with quick hits, in the hope that they'll stick around long enough to click on something else marginally more informative and worthwhile.

That "rationale" insults the intelligence of millenials as a whope. Yes, some are clueless. But many are smarter than that. You say it's s all about "hooking them with quick hits, in the hope that they'll stick around long enough?" That is known as pandering or simply insulting peoples' intelligence. It's tantamount to saying, "First, give the kids a lot of Mars bars to gorge and maybe they'll eat their veggies." Ridiculous.

For sure, there will be new forms of media. This nonsense will be forgotten by then.

Let's see. All millennials are so busy being cool they don't have the time or depth of intellect to comprehend or digest conventional news stories. So build a website around material from other sites and add enough silliness to get them interested in "real journalism." That's taking a hell of a lot for granted.

It says less about milennials and more about the "geniuses" who are funding, advocating and creating this approach (Lexi take note). It's pretty risky to smugly assume a whole demographic is flighty, then market to them with that in mind. At the end of the day, monetizing this crap is easier fantasized about than achieved.
