Sherp,This is an internet blog on a video game. Your definition of Journalism is incorrect. A journalist is someone who maintains a journal. While a reporter, who's job it is is to record and report facts, is always a journalist, not all journalists are in fact reporters. Opinion journalists are not reporters, but are journalists. Rigidly defined, Adam may be an journailst, but that does not make him a reporter. He is an opinion columnist for an on line web site. His job is to give his opinion on any number of subjects that contain to the game World of Warcraft. If you dislike his opinion, feel glad that the site has a forum for you to express your disagreement. He is not beholden to you for the content of his pieces. You aren't a paying customer, unless you are an advertiser on this web site. If you want to hold any opinion writer to the same standards as you would a reporter for the AP, then I suggest you find a news site dedicated on reporting only the facts about World of Warcraft. Although, I expect your search will be long and fruitless. If you don't like Adams opinions, on the other hand, that is a different story. Discussing the merits of his arguements and opinions is something completely different. An intelligent discussion on merit is far more interesting than an ignorant discussion of why you are annoyed that someone holds a different opinion.The wonderful thing about opinions is that a differing opinion has no cost to you, and can only benefit you. It will either cause you to strengthen your reasoning for your opinion, or cause you to reasses the value of your original opinion. Whatever the change your opinion undergoes, it will only become stronger.Consider that the next time you throw a hissy fit when someone has a contrary opinion to yours. Not only will it make you a more intelligent person, it will make you look less stupid.
