Infamy

This week, Anthony Gormley's One & Other using the fourth plinth of Trafalgar Square ended.

Nearly every piece of journalism, be it radio, television or newspaper that I heard used a comparison with Andy Warhol's now famous quote, something along the lines of:

'Andy Warhol once said that everyone would get 15 minutes of fame. These 2,400 artists, however, had an hour each. Anthony Gormley's art project, blah, blah, blah...'

Every single report I came across. That's just lazy journalism. Sort it out.

These days almost every piece of journalism I come across is lazy journalism. They're fed a line by some big wig or organization and then regurgitate it with their own ideological perspective inserted.
