Comments overtaking articles

Throwaway article on what they call the Doofus Dad stereotype.

Comments section full of fed up dads.

Maybe they should go on strike.


In general the comments section is better than the article now in a lot of places.

This article also lists the cities and states the comments are from which was interesting to see based on the comments.

Except for certain sites(like one run by a dude in a beard we all love in the least gayest way possible) I scroll right to the comment section. Often the people in the comments section are more insightful, intelligent, and funnier.

RE: Comments overtaking articles
There's a lot more truth telling in the comments to news stories now than in the stories themselves.

And the comedy is often better than that of professional comedians
