Bonuses for clicks fatal for journalism

In the US, certain media have begun paying their freelance staff a bonus in addition to their basic fees depending on the amount of clicks their articles attract, José San Clemente reports in his blog Entre Medios, and warns of the dangers of this trend: "The journalist could be tempted to deal only with the more popular and commercially successful topics and ignore relevant stories that require more intense research but don't appeal to a broader public. Thousands of traps in the selection of headlines, photos and videos that draw attention and attract readers, but perhaps distort reality, could end up filling the pages of many newspapers."
