Vice has its awful bits to be sure, but they also do quality journalism 
particularly in the hacker space.  They employ two of the best infosec
journalists in the world, Joseph Cox and Lorenzo Francheschi-Bicchierai.

In particular, here's some recent good stuff:

What with NYT platforming a climate change denialist and the Boston 
Globe going soft nazi, never mind WaPo's foreign policy, I'll take 
journalism where I can find it these days.
