Objection on objectivity

Wow, Ben Brooks is pretty riled-up on this one:

As I said above I was pretty excited about The Verge and what the crew behind it was trying to do. I think they created a great independent site that gets excellent access to companies they cover. I think that they created a great brand and image.

But I think the site’s content is pretty lackluster.

Push aside the press release re-writes that contain little to no commentary — this is par for the course (unfortunately) — and you are left with tech specs.

On some degree I agree with Ben, yet The Verge also have their value on how to cover news in tech, and I too agree with them. It’s a matter of taste, perhaps?
