    my favorite movie reviewer on YouTube for 2020 is Chris Stuckmann 

    Here he takes apart the new Wonder Woman movie in a thoughtful, careful, thorough manner.

    i suppose it’s why he has over 1.8 million subscribers.

    1.8 million subscribers is quadruple what the LA Times’ youtube channel currently has.

    the LA Times has a staff of talented, award-winning, super-connected journalists photographers and video experts

    and yet one guy in his spare room,

    wearing a Blockbuster Video t-shirt laps them.

    why?

    are they doing everything wrong?

    are they not putting their right people in front of the camera?

    despite all the “young” people they’ve hired in digital, do they still not get it?

    i think the main problem is the Times isn’t really used to paying attention to the audience.

    Few newspapers are used to doing that.

    Also: audiences change what they want.

    Often.
