Old News Ain’t News

Opinion: It’s manipulative and lazy for bloggers to repost old videos and accounts as though they were actual news. New analysis of Patterson Gimlin Film! NOT.

Readers click on a new post only to find a rehash of old material that has been rehashed many times before. It’s a let-down and a con to get more clicks or something. The reader is left feeling a bit used and in need of a shower.

So, you guys, stop repeating old material. Most readers have by now seen or can easily find old reports.

If material is old but was never in circulation, go ahead. But otherwise, forbear.

Now I have to go check my posts to make sure I haven’t done this!
