No, that's completely backwards. Newspapers should print news, otherwise we have cats crossing over into mainstream media.

I gave up going to CNN.com when they made similar changes.  So newspapers are going to start linking to Onion articles on their front page, now?

I don't think having a headline every day that reads "Belieber For Life" is going to make anyone more likely to buy a newspaper.

Basing the news relevancy on social media shares is dumb as hell. Every website would become far-left, far-right, or TMZ.

Same here.  As well as my local news site nola.com.  Completely arranged out of context on most days.  Feels completely random.

As I type this, the largest item (taking up pretty much the entire screen) on nola.com is "The Week in Photos From Around the World".... really?  I'm going to my local news site for simple images that have nothing to do with our area??
