This design critique will probably come out sounding like a rant, but it drives me crazy to see news organizations shooting themselves in the foot. I’m reminded of the Molly Ivins quote from 2006:
I don’t so much mind that newspapers are dying — it’s watching them commit suicide that pisses me off.
Well, I do mind that they are dying. And I’m really pissed off when they demonstrate cluelessness that contributes to the death watch.
