I was recently covered by a variety of news outlets after a tweet I sent went viral. It was interesting to see the varied quality between different outlets.
BuzzFeed news was by far the highest quality — they actually did reporting. On the other end of the spectrum was Time and Newsweek. I would say Newsweek was easily the worst of all. They aggregated a couple of tweets, quoted from my blog post and wouldn’t even link to the blog post they quoted.
I never heard back.
Don’t link to outside sources? Isn’t that the whole point of what aggregators are supposed to do? In other words, I see what you’re saying.
