I'm confused. Are you trying to say that you don't have a background in journalism? Or you do, but it's just decades old from a time when the goal was to inform and not just get page views? Modern journalistic tack is to write sensationalist scare stories targeted at the least common denominator moron, as they'll be the most outraged and hang on every update.

I don't think it's a coincidence that most modern journalism isn't worth reading, IMHO.

It's not decades old - I just like to think we did a good job of writing informative pieces instead of sensationalist nonsense.

At least, we made a very, very dedicated effort to follow journalistic ethics - I'll let others be the judge on how well we succeeded. :-)
