I once read just a few hours ago but already forgot the source, that Jalopnik was very poor on actual reviews but excelled at other things. I’d like to submit this as an example of why people keep coming back to Gawker Media and Jalopnik - the stories behind the little details other media outlets might not care about but people are still interested in anyway, and finding the fascinating human element therein.

That’s the basics of good storytelling right there.
