At the same time he posts with x-edit sentences still in the article. In a rush to get something out there with his name on it that is ahead of everyone else. Who cares if the article is wrong or incomplete or still has x-edit sentences showing. "Hurry, Hurry, get it sent!"The economics of blogging is to get as many page view impressions as you possibly can. The way to do this is to get content out there as quickly as you possibly can which means as early in the news cycle as possible. The fact that the content may be full of errors or misleading isn't the point. That doesn't reduce the number of page view impressions or the advertising revenue in the least. At a later point, if called on by readers, they can issue weak mea culpas. Fact checking up front takes time and effort and would result in the article hitting search engines after the peak of the news cycle. This is not a priority for mass volume bloggers like Felix Salmon or sites like Seeking Alpha where editors most certainly do not fact check articles prior to publication.
