Subject: How they would LIKE this to work
In reply to: Lexi Lou Who 's message, "What is the Point of The Incline?" on 13:21:44 01/06/17 Fri

You see, the phone-pad addicted, news-starved milennials are supposed to look at these inane sites and notice someting and say to themselves, "Ooh! Cool! A video of a woman who makes tchotchkes out of pet hair! I wanna see that and be entertained!"

Then that will entice them to get serious and read some long article on Trump's Russian connections or maybe a lengthy article on the future of climate change. The geniuses financing these sites really believe this will happen.

Even if that strategy worked (and I'm not at all convinced that it does because no one has been able to make any money with it so far), The Incline doesn't even offer any in-depth original news, at least none that I have seen in the times I have visited the site. The news it does have is from other publications, packaged along with a bunch of social media posts.

How can they possibly make money this way? Better question: How long before Gannett decides they can funnel their money elsewhere?

Not long. They are probably already shaking their heads at Gannett.
