I used to subscribe to the New York Times and spend an hour or so every morning reading it.
Now I don't have to.
'Why', you ask?
Because every article of any possible interest in the Times is quickly clipped and posted here on Open Salon, masquerading as original thought.
The resulting articles are original and good.
Of course nothing good is original - the good writing has been clipped directly from the Times. And, as expected, nothing original in these OS articles is good - that's because the skills of the OS writers pale compared to those of the NYT writers.
The editors of OS seem not to give a crap about writing, ability originality or plagiarism and willingly tolerate this for the sake of clicks.
What I don't get is what the writers here get out of it.
