Attention Must Be Paid, but for How Much Longer?
This concluding chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the so-called newslore or the folklore on the Internet. It speculates on the future of newslore and highlights some observations about newslore. These include the decline in the quality of newer material and the dominance of the latest “bons mots” of the late-night comedian in humor web sites. This chapter also suggests that while much newslore is grounded in skepticism and not cynicism, much of it feeds on credulousness.
