I don’t have comments here, but there is an interesting thread of comments going on in The Verge forums on a post someone made agreeing with my post about The Verge. I wouldn’t normally link to this type of thing here as I find it a bit too “me” centric.

However, I find some of the comments to be very interesting. A couple even say that they basically like The Verge for the very reasons that I dislike it — that’s something I certainly can understand.

One thing to be careful of is the “fanboy” slinging and using words like “objective”. I don’t know that I can articulate why I dislike those words as well as John Gruber did on the latest episode of The Talk Show.

I’d just say that fanboy is an unneccessary term and objective news coverage can contain opinion.
