Kiron Solari Kiron is a somber European man who devotes most of his time to making money, reading, working out and plotting revenge against the people who turned the world upside down. I doubt anyone needs to be reminded that the media is rotten to the core; even the most reluctant and closed-minded people are accepting this as a given now.
However, there is always a way in—through purposeful infiltration or, in my case, by accident. However, these traits are also coupled with always assuming the best of people and being rather naive. Due to this, he keeps ending up in awkward and sometimes dangerous situations.
One of them turned out to be a short stint as a journalist for a popular online newspaper.
He barely maintained contact during his employment and eventually went completely off the grid. In about a month, he resurfaced a changed man, and not for the better.

Whoever pays you, owns you Just your regular journalists waiting for their paycheck. Sven joined the ranks of journalists to tell people the truth. To his credit, he believed he would be doing exactly that.
The reality turned out to be diametrically different—after our fresh-baked journalist returned from his first interview, he was immediately ordered to transcribe the recording and email it to the content manager.

When he went to the manager to voice his indignation, the manager simply replied: Get back to your desk.
His numerous colleagues almost never produced independent content—they were too busy publishing one paid article after another. When Sven asked whether these articles should be marked as sponsored, the only reply he got was a bitter laugh.
Do not screw this article up. One of them even went as far as to hand him a pre-written speech, tell him to work with it and walk away.
It was a big shock for Sven when he finally realized that his employers were beings without conscience who whored themselves out to the highest bidder. It was an even bigger shock when he discovered how nonchalantly his colleagues treated their responsibilities.
Investigative journalists relied on information they got from Google searches and Twitter posts, editors and sub-editors used rumors and hearsay to write scathing op-eds, website managers just posted any content that caught their fancy as long as they could come up with a flashy enough headline for it to attract people.
