I agree with Rob, in terms of a dissatisfaction when it comes to 'churnalism'. It does often lead people to be unable to clearly seperate fact from accumulated rumours. Where the facility and time exists to verify and source, properly, then I'd prefer to see that done, and provide a better 'value' article or report as a result, than have piecemeal, hearsay-driven "news" being waved around and distributed as the real thing, just because that's the quickest material that could make it to a site's front page. Please don't misunderstand! I think there's definitely a place for rumours and aggregation.
However, at the moment, internet gaming news doesn't always work that way, so it's not always the best idea to rely on information found in a lot of news.
