    • Yeah, there is so much of fabrications in there that a small cottage industry has grown up out of the need to fact-check. Which I guess is also one way to keep unemployment down.

    • Interesting. I took a call against permanent columnists in two places — Rediff and Yahoo. Not for this exact same reason (I can see some value in writers with their own following), but because once it becomes a regular thing, a lot of columnists (not all, but enough) become lazy, and just write to fill allotted space. I like the other model better — depending on the issue of the day, find the right person to write. Requires more effort than the “regulars” route, but it is worth it.
