Press Release ≠ Press
Dear MacNN-- Reprinting press releases don't qualify you as journalists.

MacNN does lots of other things, but it does -- routinely -- print stories about new products ... just like every other Mac news site I'm aware of (particularly on slow news days such as holiday weekends). If you're looking for journalism, I suggest you look at some of these:

There you go, plenty of non-PR-based stories for you to read -- and that's just from the current front page. Shall I go on for you?

Re: Press release ≠ Press
"Reprinting press releases don't qualify you as journalists."
You must be new here :-)
I'd classify MacNN as a "trade journal" insofar that much of what is news about Macs is simply product releases and needs no more than a couple of lines describing the product. Taking it straight from the press release is fine because it's just a heads-up for quick reading. Perhaps MacNN could have little badges for "Reviews", "News" and "PR", etc that would help us quickly distinguish between items, but it's generally pretty obvious what's a press release and what's not.
Anyway, Happy Easter to all and I hope the bunny was generous.
