It's an SEO factory. They have signs hanging up in the big room and even on the elevator that ask, "What did you do to generate traffic today?" It's why all their stuff is done in 10-20 page slideshow format. I would never take it seriously as a source of anything, not even the umpteen million "15 hottest athlete girlfriend" slideshows.
The problem is that some people actually go their for news and articles. A bunch of people I know at Mizzou write stuff for them and it is good experience for the journalism majors. I don't know what is more reliable, Eklund or a rumor on Bleacher Report?
