Comments on: Michael Wolff’s doomed aggregation strategy http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2010/04/05/michael-wolffs-doomed-aggregation-strategy/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Newserdotcom http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2010/04/05/michael-wolffs-doomed-aggregation-strategy/comment-page-1/#comment-13282 Thu, 08 Apr 2010 21:20:27 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/?p=3216#comment-13282 I’m the Marketing Manager at Newser and I wanted to point out that we do, in fact, have inline links to the original source in addition to the link at the right (under SOURCES in red) and the link in the rollover (which you can access from the grid). Any omission of an inline link is simply an error, not an attempt to pass the source’s content as our own. As a side note, we did remove interstitial ads (unrelated to Ms. Waxman’s complaints).

It amazes me to find sites pulling that one – yet still trying to take themselves seriously as ‘news outlets’ – as if people don’t see what they’re doing.

(More strategies that annoy others, and are ultimately self-defeating: cloying/syncophantic fluff, and sh*tty writing.)
