It's difficult to be generous to blogs which feature so many press releases or articles in their posts.
This tendency, while useful for non-mainstream news, has no real role when it comes to news featured prominently in the traditional media.
On a more positive note, there are items - local and of speciality interest - which many might miss if they weren't included here, and the posts feature a 'current mood' feature which works well.
