im not saying it used to be a bastion of truth, however i used to glance over it for news, but recently its just been full of un-informed bloggers gossip which is a shame.

has journalism fallen so far that this has become the norm, any guy with an internet connection has a valid voice when it comes to news?

its a shame.

In pre-season, I find myself looking more and more at the News Now stuff at the bottom of the page and I do mean stuff as it is in no way journalism.

It is just, Palace fans react... If I want to see how Palace fans react, I would join a fans forum.. Wait a minute...

I suppose the only reason I look is that there is little else on Palace and once in a blue moon there is a report that informs me about something I didn't know.

In general, even as click bait the standard is extremely low.

It'd be interesting to post some bollix on there - maybe Messi signing for Norwich and see how it's received and who re-blogs it.

There's so much trash around now!

I yearn for the good old days of quality football journalism, with a newspaper photo of Don Rogers ("Palace sharpshooter gunning for goals" ) dressed up as a cowboy complete with two six-guns.

News Now just scrapes other web sites and collates the articles under the relevant headings.

In the main the articles that they list are written by people with an interest in football who have often written an article based on information that they have either guessed or seen elsewhere.

On the whole their so called information is worth no more nor less than any fan's post on this or other football fan sites as evidenced by last week's article that we are looking at buying Lookman from Everton

I do peruse the news now stuff if I get bored
(especially during the transfer windows) the other place I look is the bbc sport app, the green header at the bottom of the page - "Football Gossip" gives you a round up of what the main headlines are involving transfers - obviously taken with a pinch of salt.

This used to be my first port of call for any Palace related news, now it’s just click bait at it’s finest. “ fans will be buzzing” and “once described as brilliant “ headlines raise a smile. I still find myself looking on there thou, regrettably.

Agreed but where do we go for reliable transfer information?

Forums aren't much better as both BBS and HOL base their transfer threads on click bait articles that they have spotted on News Now with the big difference between the two Palace forums being that the threads on BBS are much lengthier as two thirds of the posts are just the members insulting each other

There are, but Harvey isn't one of them.

Surely we just got to “Dazza” for all our info to do with the club transfers... not that he knows anything, it just helps fill his attention/narcissism for the day

I generally use a very reliable site like this one [Link] Usually pretty accurate.

I'm not so impatient though.
