News vs. Endorsements
Disclaimer: This should go without saying, but we occasionally find it necessary to make something clear. The fact that we write about something, whether because it’s interesting, or compelling, or just plain ridiculous, does not mean we are endorsing it, not even tacitly. Nor does it mean we are reviewing it, or in any way doing more than relaying the information we know (or that has been provided by the manufacturer/organization).
If we think something is groovy, cool, or nifty, we’ll say so. As you’ll notice, stories are categorized. Some can be found in the Be Advised dropdown, others are labeled industry news, which is entirely different than the Reports and Reviews category. Still more are entitled News from JTF Awesome, while some even say WTAF. That acronym should require no definition here.
Here’s an example: in August of 1884, the New York Times published a story called Horrors of Sabine. It was about the Greeley Expedition to the Arctic, where in some stranded sailors ate a few of their buddies. While that’s an interesting story, perhaps even salacious to some, we find it highly unlikely any contemporary Times readers considered that story to be an endorsement of cannibalism, or for that matter, any other sort of friend-devouring activity.
There are no doubt more recent examples, but we reckon that makes our point pretty well.
In any case, do your best to understand the difference between story types. We’ll do our best to make our opinion (if we have one) abundantly clear.
