What not to use

I came across this Scifi Article via Whedonesque.

I can understand why they are poking fun at this concept.

Your article takes a beating when you quote YouTube comments. By the way, is that were she got all the fan quotes for her article?

Makes you cringe doesn't it?

I am sure she has other sources to use for the article. But at the same time, since she did quote YT, I also wonder if social networking was a bit new to the writer.

I maybe assuming too much but when I read articles like that, I wonder if these writers are grappling with new media as this big daunting task.
