"AUDIO!" / "VIDEO!" / "PHOTO GALLERY" – this isn't cool

Quite a few of the news web sites in Romania started adding “VIDEO” or “AUDIO” or PHOTO GALERY“. In my opinion, it’s a poor choice. It’s only addressing the emotional state – “like / love / hate”. It’s not cerebral, it’s not smart, intellectual or anything. Glamour & briz-briz & fantasies.

I want to visit a news web site to read news which is of intellectual interest to me. I don’t want tabloid-style news.

P.S.: Not my original idea, but I embrace it 100%.
