Out of the Blue

Finally got around to checking out ChatGPT. I tried to get it to make me a passable Out of the Blue, but it insisted on writing about games, which lacks authenticity. So I thought maybe it didn't "get" the site. So I asked it for a summary. I can now confirm that this tool is 100% accurate based on this flawless response:
Blue's News is a popular video game news and discussion website. It was founded in 1996 by Stephen "Blue" Heaslip, and has since become one of the oldest and most respected sources for gaming news and information on the internet.

The website covers a wide range of gaming-related topics, including news, reviews, previews, and interviews with game developers and industry insiders. In addition to providing news and information, Blue's News also features a vibrant community of gamers who share their thoughts and opinions on a wide range of gaming-related topics.

One of the things that sets Blue's News apart from other gaming websites is its commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting. The website has a reputation for being a reliable source of gaming news and information, and its editorial staff takes great care to ensure that all information presented on the site is factual and unbiased.

Overall, Blue's News is a valuable resource for anyone interested in video games, offering a wealth of information, news, and community-driven discussion in a professional and reliable format.
Thanks for giving me a big head ChatGPT!

Arguably you don't do any actual "reporting", your site is just a good collection of links to actual reporting which varies in quality. And before the knee jerk defensive reactions retorts start, I am not dismissing or saying the site isn't useful or helpful. It is. But it's a central repository of daily links, I don't see Blue or any of his 'staff' writing gaming reviews, OpEds on here unless I've been missing them for the past 20 years.
I think that's pretty apparent, I don't think anyone should be upset at that assessment. I was pleased at the flattery and impressed that it attempts to be nuanced, but most of it is generic, those parts you mention in particular. I do like that the description captures our emphasis on trying to be unbiased. But even then, that's probably at least in part derived from how I have described the site myself in various areas, rather than some objective assessment of our objectivity. I didn't dip into any interactivity, so it looks like what I got was just a very basic web-scraping.
