You could try to count referrals from linux.com if you like numbers.
Since when is the number of referrals from linux.com an indicator for quality journalism?
I believe I have a very good idea of what good journalism is
So what are your criteria for good journalism? Meaningless and/or misleading benchmarks (compiler benchmarks without optimization enabled, OS benchmarks with a FreeBSD kernel with debug info compiled in, utterly meaningless compositor comparisons (see the kwin developer's blog entry about that))? Continuous alcohol propaganda? Articles with barely any content at all (like this one, who's content boils down to "Iain Buclaw sent an email to the gcc-patches list")? Dubious language (yes, calling things "crap" and "mess" is extremely dubious for a journalist)? Dozens of articles where the only news is
I'm sorry to bring this to you, but no, that's not good journalism.
