Reader reaction to Reuters news
“The ignorant words of morons…”
I am so sick and tired of Reuters’ public comments section. I expect to come to Reuters for expert world NEWS, not the ignorant words of morons with political axes to grind. What a complete waste.
Despite 20-something tech entrepreneurs thinking they know it all, participation isn’t a good thing for news; when it comes to world affairs, I expect to read the work of real professionals, not have those professionals drowned out by the uninformed opinions of the masses.
I won’t be visiting Reuters web site any more. It seems Thomson Retuers, despite its value proposition aiming for the opposite, has yet to realize information overload isn’t valuable at all.
You forget that social media is only valuable if the content is valuable, and 99.9% of public comments on your site are anything but.
Ugh, why bother with this insane cacophony?
Let me get this straight. Is somebody holding you at gunpoint and forcing you to read these comments?
Because if I hated something as much as you seem to hate these, when I got to the clearly marked COMMENTS line I’d just stop reading and move on to the next story: GBU Editor
