Comments on: What News Sites Could Learn from TMZ, yes that TMZ… http://designnotes.info/?p=1994 Testing & Sprinting Mon, 20 Feb 2017 09:49:00 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.7.7 By: mrmcginnis http://designnotes.info/?p=1994&cpage=1#comment-99791 Wed, 30 Dec 2009 00:51:04 +0000 http://designnotes.info/?p=1994#comment-99791 He is giving accolades for unsavory, perhaps unethical, behavior. He thinks it's a good thing. that's what I got.

Also, I never take anyone's word as fact, and most definitely not the NYtimes. That's why I like feed readers, because you can read MANY stories on the same subject and make your own conclusions. The accessibility of a variety of sources is the great thing about the internet.

Everyone has different values on what's good. While you're comfortable in avoiding TMZ, I suspect that more of your sources of news are going to try figuring out how to beat them to the punch—most likely with poor results.

Doing so may be “the future,” but that doesn't make it correct or healthy. I could run into McDonald's and grab some crap really fast and cheap and scarf it down. That's why McDonald's is successful. Just because something works, and has proven success doesn't mean that's the way it should be done. I avoid fast food and I avoid TMZ.

Access is key while by the time things have been confirmed there's another story to report.

And I certainly don't need to know it immediately.

But in all seriousness I was trying to point out the speed difference in getting information out there. Typically it's TMZ first for most stuff on people.
