Online media in Indonesia is called secondary journalism as it gives priority on speed and tends to ignore other journalism principles such as accuracy and completeness. ‘Kamasutra journalism’ is another label for this platform since it provides space for discussing sexuality vulgarly, particularly during the boom of the ‘Ariel and Luna Maya2 porn video case’. This study applies the theory of determination technology (Marshall Mc Luhan; 1962) to explain how technology has influenced the newsroom. Exploration on media routines (Pamela J. Shoemaker; 1991) is done to get in-depth description of how the production of online news is occurred and how the quality of reporting is affected by the use of the internet. The results of this study indicate that internet technology has contributed to the degradation of news quality. It happens when the media industry forces the editor to defeat old platforms by maximizing internet superiority such us quickness, interactivity, etc.
