A lot of articles you read online would start by random quotes and abstract thoughts or philosophy not on the actual subject but on things related to the subject,including a lot of personal opinions.
For example i was reading articles on performance of a particular graphics hardware. Almost all articles started of by abstract talk on how nvidia was battling amd and certain other moves by the manufacturer etc. Then it said about what the writer thinks about those moves taken by the company and then some poor assumptions of what the public thinks.Its almost as if the article writer is making a YouTube stream
It took like 3-4 paragraph of scrolling before the article actually showed something remotely close to the subject like how the hardware actually performs and even later it showed the actual figures and bar charts.
Mind that the title of the article was about that hardwares test case and not about its company or rivals or company history or market competition.
So why do so many articles contain placeholder information?
Is due to lack of quality control ? Like big online magazines hiring dozens of low quality writers so they have something to put out quickly all the time?
