        I work as a news reporter... trust me... there's press releases... and there's lame PR crap... as "Hey, we made our menu blue, check our product out" ... and if you don't... they put it on Medium or their own blog disguised as UI research or some long-winded text fart.

      The difference with the HN community though is they don't just discount something purely because it's on Medium, they qualify something based its content. On DN, it's immediately disregarded for no other reason than it's on Medium, which I think kinda falls on the people sharing the terrible Medium links here, rather than the site it's coming from.
