Comment Better Journalism (Score 5, Informative) 108

I can narrow this down to having been introduced by the House. Commit 2015-10-28 pushed by House shows:

Diff places blame on house.

Perhaps an improvement would be

"The United States House of Representatives added a loophole for debt collection robocalls into the budget bill":

This is the limit of my journalism abilities here, but just hoping to make some improvement.

I would glad pay money for Slashdot if somehow the journalism could be improved.

Their goal is to get you to choose a product line and buy old technology -- because you wont expect "that model" to be replaced any time soon.
