I also agree that the market is not 'broken'. Simply in its infancy. The current patch is only a week old. It's a bit early to declare that things simply aren't working.In Fox's defense, him and Basil do need to come up with a compelling topic for the column each week. I'd imagine any publication needs to stretch reality a bit when there just isn't anything newsworthy to report on. Every media outlet practices this, and is simply a part of a news-hungry customer base that has grown used to getting up to the minute information.Keep in mind that it has also become a bit more difficult to provide the amount of compelling wow-related news that WoW Insider was able to provide during the Lich King expansion for one reason: Ghostcrawlers' silence. In Wrath, he provided insight into character and raid balancing on an almost daily basis. It supplied Wow Insider with a steady stream of topics to cover, and a few comments from Ghostcrawler was enough to provide a healthy does of analysis and speculation to each columnist here for a good couple of weeks.I myself used to read WoW Insider almost every day during Wrath for the above mentioned reason. Now, I can easily go for 3-4 days at a time without feeling compelled to do so. It has nothing to do with the quality of the articles published. The guys here still provide a top notch blog. It's more of a content problem, and not the sort that anyone can do anything about.
