ProsThey ask at the end how long it took you to complete, which I assume is out of a willingness to understand how they're paying, which I appreciated.
EDIT: Responded positively to my email about the missing survey code after just a few minutes.
ConsIncludes some kind of upsetting news headlines (some falsified) - violence to children, some other disturbing violent content.
Photo of a syringe. Another photo with some blood on a deceased sea creature.
No survey code appeared at the end; emailed the requester about this. (EDIT: Responded back!)

ProsEdit (1/24/22): Looking at the 5 other reviews for this HIT, it does not seems as if anyone else recorded the possibility of a bonus. It has been so long, I don't remember this HIT and I only had a penny for a placeholder. Instead of marking this as unpaid, I am removing the bonus all together.
However, since I have sent dozens of inquires about the bonus with no answer, I am marking communication to reflect.
Bonus op, but doubt it will make up for the dismal pay. YMMV.

ProsUnintentionally funny. It had a bunch of headlines that talked about things like Trump crying in a garden, someone wanting to erase 4.6 billion years of history, etc. The article headlines had to be fake. That, or I don't check the news often enough.
ConsIf you're a political zealot, some headlines may make you angry.
