I don't think that the negative notion of some duplication or overlap accounts for the idea of "perspectives," which I think are key elements in any sort of evaluation of any topic or product. 100 people can travel somewhere or live in the same place or eat the same food, but each may have a different experience. I believe that sites which allow for different perspectives on the same topic are very useful in providing a fuller picture of the possibilities and interpretations and should not be penalized for doing so. I know that I do not believe that anyone is an "authority" on most given subjects, which is generally born out over time, and that the strength of the web is in allowing different viewpoints. Obviously you are looking for writing that is literate, but even that is all relative, as experts on user interface design on the web emphasize the use of bullet points and the like in lieu of the type of full paragraphs used in print media. Such differences are due to the speed and nature of user scanning of a webpage or tiny little mobile screen in the digital world.
