online advertising business models cannot support the salaries and infrastructure of a proper formal news organization, therefore the quality drops to a level that is supportable by the business.
For a while I thought that it was not about the story, it was about the group discussion/posts. That used to be the slashdot success for me. But that model has degraded also. Sad to say.
I know I am totally down for this duty. Plus, I want to drive the new Aston Martin, and hang around Monte Carlo and the Bahamas.
