OSNews, Generic OSes Considering the polarising topic of software patents and related IP litigation is coming up a lot lately, I felt the need to write a few words on this thing called 'bias'. This word is being thrown around a lot, but I get the feeling many people are unclear as to what, exactly, it means. Because contrary to popular opinion, there's nothing wrong with being being biased. In fact, there's no such thing as unbiased blogging (or even unbiased journalism).

From my point of view

I had been a long time reader however I stopped (and I now visit on occasion) mainly because of the deteriorating quality of the articles. This has mainly to do with the notion of bias and objectiveness that you addressed but also the tone and the style of the articles in the recent years.

In essence, I was expecting more of the style of AllThingsD, Arstechnica, Anandtech(more tech related but still) and less Gizmodo. I know, relating you to Gizmodo is a pretty big insult, but I feel that this is where it's heading to.

This is just my input; hope you'll find it useful.

If we have their kind of cash and personell, then we'll try.

As long as I'm doing this on my own with limited funds - sorry. Can't offer anything like that ;) .

I was referring to the quality and the style/tone of the content and not the quantity.


Take a random pick of articles from the sites named and you'll see a pattern.

I think you should also take it as a complement, as I consider that you have the capacity to produce content on the same level of the more respected sites, rather than the garbage that comes out of the likes of Gizmodo.
