Again, there was nothing new in the PC Gamer article that wasn't from MMI-champion leak or the Something Awful forums.

Multiple sites presenting the same information is not a failure on the part of the second or third site to do so. Do you criticize NBC when they report on a story ten minutes after CBS does? No. People get their news from different sources; those who don't check MMO-champion or whichever site got that particular scoop could still find useful information here, even if it's reported second.

I would criticize NBC if they reported a story several months after CBS and presented it as new information, yes.

Just so you know, reporting news -- even news related to online video games -- is not the type of thing that you need to yell "FIRST!!1!1!" over. Sure, kudos to the people who get the scoop, but if the news is worthy of being noted in the first place then any media source would be failing in their aim to report such things by NOT doing so simply because they weren't the quickest on picking up the story.If it was, in fact, seven months late (which I don't believe to be true, since this isn't the first time WoW.com has reported these types of Cataclysm-related items), there is still such a thing as re-reporting things -- a review of past news as it relates to upcoming topics. If you missed it the first time here, which it seems you may have, you're basically reinforcing the position of this website for writing a new story about it.
