Comic: Entertainment News



We know YouTube and Social Media have created algorithms that steer people into rabbit-holes. Now we got folks thousands of videos into the weeds - radicalized by the "entertainment-news" they're watching. I'm getting their hateful panicked messages, you might be too. 

I been pretending to be a proper algorithm that responds with a calm, fact-checked video they might enjoy - preferably an expert they respect. Isolating folks is bad. Interacting is terrible. But maybe we can somehow influence recommendations remotely - talk to the algorithm using clicks. I'm desperate for anything.

Comic: Greenhorn Orientation

 

Hell is Multi-Level-Marketing. Lonnie must damn his friends and family before someone else does. He easily ropes-in a petty criminal uncle. Early success soon has him aiming for the big fish - and diamond rock-star status. Perhaps his horns are getting too big for his head.

Comic: Rage Coffee

 



It was fashionable to own a newspaper, and inexpensive too. One hyper-competitive billionaire thought he was pretty smart. Blurring current events with marketing had been very good business - everything he always wanted. 

Now he's three times divorced and surrounded by ass-kissing sycophants. He smuggles himself to South America in a suitcase. The other fugitive beach bums call him an asshole.
