Jamie Kelly (via Richard Dunlop-Walters):

There is a difference between being first and being the first one who is right, and when traffic is the name of the game being first trumps all, but it shouldn’t.

I am of the school that believes there is some value in mocking bad journalism of any kind. In fact, I donated a new wing to the library at the School Of Mocking Bad Journalism Of Any Kind (and Vocational Technology). So, I can’t adhere strictly to his “Don’t look” prescription, but we agree what the problem is and that the solution is paying more attention to and making sites that do better work.
