Roger Black:

The old-line media ranks news in a 20th-century order:

  1. War and statecraft

  2. Politics

  3. Natural and man-made disasters

  4. Murders

  5. Business and finance

  6. Social issues

  7. Local

  8. Fine arts

  9. Entertainment

  10. Food and lifestyle

  11. Fashion

  12. Celebrities

Did we leave out technology? Oh, well, we’ll put it in business. How about design? It can go in lifestyle or somewhere…. What about personal technology, to which people have become so utterly attached?

Bret Easton Ellis describes this philosophy as Empire.
