Why care about content when a sexy hook/headline and editorially-mandated vapid slide show can squeeze out a few more hits.
The very regrettable loss of John Carney is emblematic of Blodget’s plummeting cyber-tabloid. The editorial policy is to apparently throw the good journalists off the island and have the interns provide content (at significantly less than $10K per capita per month).
Gentle reader,call me antediluvian but I expect TBI to be informative, and I fear that I will continue to be bitterly disappointed by the low cost/low content course that Blodget has charted.

As one of your more emotional rather then intellectual readers, I appreciate that you relate to a wide audience and prefer to illuminate rather than simply cater to an elite group of readers.

I have learned a lot from you and your readers.
