They are adamant that what they do is curation, but this here is textbook aggregation (aka content theft):

http://theincline.com/2016/09/14/liberty-bridge-closure-101-why-the-pittsburgh-artery-is-still-shut-down/

And who exactly is the audience for this article? "Tell me about this bridge, is it important?" sounds like someone who's never set foot in Pittsburgh or at best someone who has lived in a cave the past two weeks.

Weak attempt at "explainer" journalism with little to no original reporting.

The defensive youngsters here don't want to hear these sorts of things. They're slackers. Substance and originality will never be their strong points. I don't want to say this applies to all younger journalists. There are many who still prefer doing it correctly and don't care about being "kewl."

As for Lexi, she had nothing going for her at the PG except a folio of mediocre work. This foray into nonsense is just her attempt to try to jump on the "cutting edge." If anyone figures out what's so daring about this load of rubbish, please let me know.
