I have been a contributor to The Digitel for a while now and have meant to do this earlier, but things have kept me from doing so, but decided to take the time to do it now, so here goes.
As an editor here I have seen alot of RSS feeds or whatever you call them from local news sources such as The Sun News, WBTW, WPDE, WMBF and others and I don't see how a contributor like myself who see an article of interest and decides to post it here on The Digitel to find it already exist, not by another editor but a feed from a local news source I know The Digitel is a place to write short summaries of stories of interest, but I don't see how if there are getting feed right from the source. I know the aim of this site is to not re-report, but to act as concierge, connecting folks to the best in local coverage online, but I say that is hard to act as a concierge when you have the direct feeds to the source, so I say the The Digitel should cut back on the direct feeds and let the editors write short summaries on stories of interest like The Digitel was orginally meant to be and get back to using The Digitel's 5 points.
Don't take this letter the wrong way as I'm just stating my opinion and I think The Digitel could better better with a cut back on the direct news feeds. That is just my opinion.
