Y'know, you used to have a rather good videogame journalism feature on Penny Arcade.

Is the "galleries of gender-swapped videogame princesses going to Disney Robot College" line a shot at Kotaku? Because they post something like that at least once a week.
Something you will derive from this book is a high resolution diagram of what we already suspect to be true: that the incentive structure for online news essentially demands that you troll your readers 24/7.

The most surreal part of this was the casual mention, in the story I read, of their parent company AOL's earnings of $454 million in the last quarter, mostly from "subscription services" including dial-up.... Buh..wuh...WTF?!
How is it even remotely possible to make that kind of money making screechy modem noises at people in this century?

Some folks are trying to make a go of a revenue model that allows for higher-quality writing (Kickstarted subscription projects, largely), but in general we need a lot of help from readers. People say they want high-quality articles, but not enough people actually read 'em, and next thing you know the site owners are pushing everybody to write more top ten lists because that's what gets the clicks. It's the same problem in all media, magnified by the fact that game site readers mostly have adblock on but are not receptive to alternative ways to pay for quality coverage. Can't get the good stuff for free.
