quote: To put a paragraph on global warming controversy on an article completely unrelated to it. Looks like forum trolling more than a news site. I'd take that off if I were you JM.
quote: We can't stop ourselves from reading something unless we know what's in it -- and we can't do that without reading it! Maybe you should put a disclaimer before anything completely unrelated to the article (sarcasm).
quote: The only thing you accomplished was making DT appear biased (which maybe it is).
quote: Just because news sites often tie past stories to current ones, it doesn't mean you have to. You should have left global warming out of it rather than making a stretch to connect cell phones and global warming. They have NOTHING to do with each other.
quote: It's also very unprofessional to insult your readers. Is this really what DT needs?
quote: Your readers are your customers, and I'm sure DT isn't posting articles out of the goodness of your heart. Ever hear the expression "the customer is always right?"
quote: Journalism isn't about pleasing customers. It's about sharing accurate information in an understandable format and offering insight into the world around us.
quote: What I find funny, though, about a lot of the comments against writers at these hybrid blog/news sites is that the writers are not journalists or trained writers. The expectations of readers are too high and are entirely unrealistic. Readers ought to take articles like these with a grain of salt.
quote: Considering that flaws/misrepresentations in the supposed melt data/predictions from the Himalayas have already been found, this issue certainly warrants further examination in my mind and is VERY pertinent.
quote: Perhaps you don't see the significance of an issue where trillions in taxpayer dollars are at stake, but some might...
quote: Aside from their pristine beauty, recent melting in the Himalayas has brought them to the center of the global warming controversy. Some are claiming that the change is atypical and caused by humans, while others attributed the melting trend to natural variations in the Earth's climate. Climate skeptics are sure to note the fact that early claims about Himalayan melting rates made by the UN's International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) were shown to be exaggerated, forcing the partial retraction of a major warming report.
quote: Perhaps you don't care about this debate or think its stupid, but if that is the case you should rethink your position.
quote: This is exactly why some people shouldn't breed.
quote: The coverage will also be a great boost to the impoverished Nepalese locals.
