Here are some blogs mentioning Wes WR. Also included is detaled stats of shares in various social media channels. "Authority" refers to the number of inbound links within the blog network for which I scraped the results.

Very well written article.  I like how it explores the concept of randomness and the so-called "perfect game".  Makes sense to a casual reader

In the CNET Article...
Quote
You can apparently stop trying to beat the high Donkey Kong score now.The highest score that you can possibly attain has been reached.
In the MSN Article...
Quote
A New York doctor, Hank Chien, took the record in 2010 and again in 2011, before Copeland and Lakeman's rivalry saw the mark change hands multiple times over the past four years.
In the yahoo article...
Quote
"Other high-ranking competitors vying for the honor over the past several months include plastic surgeon Hank Chien, MAME enthusiast John McCurdy, and longtime player Jason Wade"

Most of the articles also claim that Lakeman has stopped going for the world record.  While this isn't correct, I can see why they might believe this based on his facebook post.

Either way, a lot of these article writers need to do some more research...

Tanner the more you read "news" about things you are familiar with in life, the more you will realize how nothing in the world is reported on accurately. Think about all of the other articles you've read in your lifetime - imagine how much misinformation is out there... <Tim> <Tim>

I totally agree, these were just some observations from reading through them briefly
