This (the below M* article) is a nice read. The article discusses some of the Charlie/Warren recommended books to read and other good stuff. I like Morningstar because it seems there articles are more quantitative, professional, and factual in their discussions.

I contrast this to tscm article which is more about selling a newsletter or turning a quick trade (e.g., JJC out of oils until 5-down days are over as he has mentioned on Mad Money).

I have to say that Jim Seymour, who passed away a few years ago, used to cover the Berkshire event - and he was a class guy. Seymour hooked me on Google at the very onset of Google - before Google became a verb. I miss big Jim.

I also like the fact that the M8 newsletters are advertised in their own promotion - solicitations come separately from other articles. Yes, M* has their own newsletters & want to sell the rags but they are distinct from the majority of the communication I read. A lot of the writers possess CPAs, CFAs, MBAs, etc - which puts a little credibility behind their name.
