Sounds right to me.
I don’t disagree with the premise of this piece. Humans are the most valuable part of the web, for sure, and I tend to prefer reading things that are given context by a person instead of just thrown at me by a robot.
But it is absolutely hilarious to me that at the top of this article that sits on the labeled “Expert Blog” section, we have the grandiose title of the piece, the byline including the moniker “expert blogger” and a disclaimer of sorts that says, “This blog is written by a member of our expert blogging community and expresses that expert’s views alone.” All of this before you even get to the piece.
So, maybe we should just call this what it is: “Expert Blogger Declares Himself A Superhero”.
