2 Ways of adding Context when Quoting Beau’s Videos:
1) Expanding Blockquote:
Beau reports that media traffic numbers are down from 2020.
As a result, he predicts more sensationalism in 2022.
In an attempt to draw the same viewership as 2020 media are going to have to:
give you something sensational to latch on to. Stories that they can milk and keep in the news cycle. That’s what I’ve got my money on. I would be prepared for a lot of sensationalist content to start coming out
2) Inline Contextual Popup:
