Many articles on this site report stories that originate on other web sites. Unlike certain web sites that consist of wholly copied articles from other sources, I believe that those who generate content have a right to benefit from it. I don’t want to copy other people’s work—even if I reword it. They deserve the web traffic, the publicity and the advertising revenue.
So when you see an article about some topic (like the most recent one on the Mississippi runoff controversy) with links to sources, you should expect that I am probably giving the subject cursory coverage and that you will miss important details if you don’t follow the links to read more. What I am trying to do is to make readers aware of the topic, summarize some of the main issues, and I hope provide enough information for the reader to decide whether they want to follow up and get more information.
