I'm finding it very difficult to uncover "high quality", unedited versions of the news on the internet ... for example, when the NY Times employee is in the center of the story, a big name super celebrity misbehaves or when Sports-Hero / Advertising mogo slips into a tirade.

Well, in cases of corporate poaching decorum, the juice of celebritization technology, the monetization of mass mania, and/or the constructive collusion of "reliable sources" normally outweigh the need for quality or actual knowledge.
