There are a few types of news that I would never cover as an editor. The first would be celebrity gossip. I think that this type of news does nothing but breed negativity and doesn't really offer anything valuable to the reader.

Definitely crime news. I think they're too horrible and there is a copycat effect every time a violent issue gets national or worldwide coverage. I don't want to perpetuate this cycle.

Anything related to crypto. I am against it. I know so many people who've lost their savings to these scams, it's just worrying to me that every day more and more young people are getting into trading and cryptocurrency as a whole.

agreed on crypto, just complete garbage in my opinion

Celebrity drama. who caaaaares ZZZZZZ

Not so much the news themselves, but maybe the kind of ads that we allow on our platform. It's just as important as the news we cover in my opinion

ever see those feel good stories about young children having to work to pay for their families cancer treatment? I find those to be in bad taste. Like why is healthcare so bad that kids have to sell their childhoods away

Tell me your craziest experience working with a TV network. Here comes mine:

I'm American, but my family is mostly Colombian. I was told my aunt and cousins would come here for 2 weeks. I discovered they were going to be paid to appear in a famous Hispanic TV show, where a "judge" receives a case, hears the plaintiffs and defendants and renders a verdict. But of course, it's all fake and payed 😂 turns out she wanted me to go there (even though I don't work for that TV network) so she's sure she'll be paid at the end of the show. Wth did I just do.
