And then I stopped reading. And then I stopped reading

I couldn’t do it. I just couldn’t read past the first paragraph of this article on Yahoo! Health:

repeat health

That was all I needed to know that this was not a piece of writing that I could trust. This article was not fact-checked, edited, or even proofread, and yet it was about the critical topic of health. Next time I’m looking for reliable information, I’ll go to WebMD.

    Here’s the thing: you know how advertisers always have to repeat a phone number three times (that often annoys me – if they just said it once, slowly, then once again at regular speed for a double-check)?

    They evidently consider this news so important that they have to repeat it.
