It is the year 2020 and journalism is now transmitted to your brain via one sentence stories that pop up on your retinal implant whenever your eyes scan a relevant bit of visual info. Informative headlines have become useless; every news story must be boiled down into the fewest possible characters. Here, a sampling of news headlines from the year 2020.

“Can’t,” a story about an army of Beyonce robots, published August 2, 2020

“Lol,” a story about a drone that pulls hilarious (and sometimes deadly) pranks on people, published February 27, 2020

“Stop,” a one-sentence treatise on gender stereotypes (sexism still isn’t solved in 2020), published April 19, 2020

“Everything,” an ironically titled picture showing the entire galaxy, published December 13, 2020

“This,” a post about nothing at all, but one that you and your peer group wholeheartedly agree with, published November 30, 2020
