Blogcritics' bread and butter has always been its ability to go deep. If something happens, our writers reflect profoundly on the situation, compare it to other events, and tie it in to our collective personal history.
While other news outlets and wire services are breaking the stories, our astute editorial team will gather those top leads and condense them as NewsFlashes. When a story gets immediate attention here, you can be sure you'll see some pertinent articles in the future from other Blogcritics in the fashion you love 'em the best: long, wise, and impeccable.
