The 75-20-5 Rule

An article from venture capitalist and former technology journalist M.G. Siegler about the credibility of most news sources about technology topics. The short version: 75% of what you read in today's press is only marginally accurate, 20% is outright wrong, and only 5% actually are usefully accurate. He also discusses why it is that these inaccuracies go uncorrected.
