The quality of internet reporting: Do Sites Link Out?

I recorded a screencast looking at the quality of internet reporting, specifically whether sites link out, on the launch of Mediaite.

I used the first page of Google Search Results for Mediaite.

Then I visited each site to see if, when reporting on Mediaite, they linked to the site.

Forbes - No
Twitter: Mediaite - No
[ Note: They need to add http:// to the URL to make it clickable ]
The Washington Post - Yes
Fimoculous - Yes
Columbia Journalism Review - Yes
Silicon Valley Insider - No
Gawker - Yes
Politico - Yes

  1. Do you think that this practice has something to do with trying to keep your readers/viewers. Maybe they don't trust that their content will keep you engaged and on the page.
