Shouldn't Deadspin do its own damn reporting?

    Dear Don and Seth,

    Deadspin just raped you, without jelly.


    Hey, Deadspin, 2 grafs and a link is a sign of respect. What you did is fucking what the Patriots did. Show some fucking respect for the reporters who put in the real time and energy.

    I'll admit, I started out just reading the Deadspin "breakdown" of the article. Halfway through, I thought "what the hell am I doing? I can just read the damn article myself without Deadspin's jack-off commentary."

    Deadspin has no incentive to do any real work.
    No idea why a serious journalist would patronize the site.

    I think a reporter who complains about Deadspin linking to his story should be careful what he asks for. I read somewhere that most traffic on a typical newspaper website comes from people using links into the site A Deadspin link will drive a lot of traffic into your story that will make your publisher proud of you.

    It is a current dilemma of newspaper industry.

    The problem isn't that Deadspin linked to his story. It's that Deadspin basically re-ran he story.
