I think that it either needs to go away or there needs to be different sources for news other than just the New York Times. Personally I think that their articles are dry and super uninteresting.

User-posted news is definitely an option I can bring to the big table - if we choose to do that, but also supplement with some additional sources, what would you like to see additionally?

I like Jalopnik.com, I read the site daily and nearly every article. If there was a way to integrate content from that site onto this one, as opposed to the NYT (which is a BS paper anyways), it would be great.

Jalopnik is great

BFRD is working on the embedding.

The embedding script we use is actually still broken on OCN... BFRD is wrenching on it to figure out what exactly is the problem. Its not a regex issue as we previously thought. Hopefully we'll be able to squash long-standing bugs like that before summer is over.
