I am not comfortable being your primary source of news. I aggregate links based on what I find interesting, outrageous, clever or fascinating. I put them together quickly, while multitasking and often not having time to read full articles before I post them. This would be bad journalistic practice, if this link-blogging were an act of journalism. But it's not.
Now, I don;t think any of you lot do take me as a primary source of news, but I would like to take this moment to make it clear that I do not always read deeply into things I link to, double-check sources, or even think about them for more than 5 seconds. I frequently link to things where I only found where there's one interesting idea and a bunch of nonsense. I link to things which I disagree with but find amusing.
I hope that you find the links amusing. I'm always cheered by people telling me that they do (and that's not a request for ego-boosting), I just want to make it clear that I don't believe everything I link to, and you bleeding well shouldn't either.
