What's wrong with a blog? There are some very bright people on Seeking Alpha and it's always a good idea to read other opinions whether you agree with them or not. I find some of the articles on SA to be better than a lot of the #$%$ some of the analysts produce. I'm not sure what your point is about them being a 'news' source. It's not meant to be just a news source (although they do actually provide business news as well). If all you read is news you get no other viewpoints. I find the people who get angriest about the articles are people who don't want to hear any opinion but their own.
