Not much value in those types of sites anymore. People just go to YouTube for content and places like reddit (or Blues!) for news and discussion.

Many of these sites have the problem of being staffed primarily by people with very little interest in video games. They are people looking to get their foot in the door in journalism, and gaming websites have a very, very low bar on who they will hire.

Why go to some website to get a political lecture on why video games are all problematic when you can just go on YouTube, load up the channel of someone who has the same taste in games as you, and get their much more relevant opinion?

Traditional games media is definitely not going to last much longer. Yahtzee is super entertaining and shouldn't have much trouble going the Jim Sterling route and going independent.

Sad for the employees. Looks like their former owner, current GM, & overall creep, Alexander Macris, abandoned it to put all of his efforts into his Milo Yiannapolis thing. Much like Milo, he realized he can only go so far on games but can make much more money pissing everyone off.
