So whats up with this site? Are my articles not "newsworthy", are they not appealing to your demographics, or are they not in whats known as the clique? Recently i have posted some articles that well for lack of a better word, been on the bottom, lacking in the "star" quailty that has been artributed to "the vine". While this is a news site, some on here post "stories" that are just that ,stories, nothing more and nothing less than stories. So on goes the site called "newsvine", I mean seriously, what is it about the cliquesters on this site that warrent their attention to be given top billing? The merit of their stories? Or is it the amount of posts, irregardless of the content of said posts? I was under the impression that what was posted had some type of "newsworthy" information that could be debated with an adult like quality, not the "my dogs bigger than your dog" mentality that pervails on the network and cable news channels.
The essence of news is just that, the essence, the facts,and myhap the opinion of the news reporter. Since when did opinion start to outweigh the facts? Since when did reporting "news" become a popularity contest? So,I,ask you , the readers of posts, opinions and last but not least,NEWS, when did it become a popularity contest as it is here on the vine?
