Now to be fair, this is Salon. And the last time Salon was relevant, everyone was on Myspace. It’s one of those strange lefty relics, like Slate, which nobody really pays attention to, so it spends all its time in the corner shouting even louder to get someone to notice.

Some media types might sneer, but this is the same formula they’re using.
