1. No, you are not. The problem is that so many news aggregators are being counted as news sources at LBN.

Thanks for saying something. DU needs to change its rules about that.

It might take Rawstory several days to steal a story from someone else and present it as its own. That doesn't make the Rawstory account worthy of posting in LBN as something that just happened.

I rely on news aggregators, but it's something that requires care. Yahoo! gets stories from Bloomberg and Reuters, so I can see who the real source is. MSN's only criterion seems to be that the source has a pulse. It takes in junk from anything that makes it over the doorstep.

Thanks again, and good morning.
