    You’re not the only one who reads the news. We do it for a living. Josiah Ryan sent this story to me yesterday afternoon. Would you like me to forward you the email?

    The-Monk, we read the same news you do. However, the reality is we have staffing limitations and can’t instantaneously cover each story — especially at night. So the majority of times you send tips to us, we are well aware of them and are a.) already working on the story or b.) have it on the list of stuff to do.

    You win TheBlaze comment section tonight.

    The final scenes are what really make this video incredible. Some incredible images captured during that storm.

    Glad you enjoyed the story!

    That’s a good point. We’ve updated the story to reflect that it’s possible that’s what Eastwood was actually saying. It should be noted, however, that all the news reports I have seen quote him as saying “they’re.”

    I’m sorry you can’t appreciate how this is a fascinating scientific discovery. Under half-a-mile of ice, scientists discover life. Perhaps you are setting your expectations a bit too high expecting crashed UFOs?

    We have displayed the image several times, including in the first carousel on the website. See: http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2015/01/12/charlie-hebdo-unveils-its-first-cover-since-12-employees-were-murdered-by-terrorists/

    This, however, is an AP wire story that we published (notice the byline) and therefore uses AP photographs.

    I am wondering the same thing!

    I am quite sure I have never written a story at TheBlaze that hasn’t resulted in someone asking how it’s a Blaze story.

    Merry Christmas to you as well!

    If we cover it after it’s gone viral, we get complaints you saw it days ago on another website. If we cover it before it goes viral, we get complaints it isn’t a viral video. Just cannot win sometimes!

    It’s something I ask myself every single time I do a post on a cool music video.

    Pretty sure that’s not the reason.

    I wrote it before it froze. It had about 250 views at the time of publication.

    I actually tweeted it last night (https://twitter.com/oliverdarcy/status/521909586400272384), but no one had still picked up on it this evening … so I thought it was still worthy of a story!

    They’re fun and a lot of people seem to enjoy them!
