Busy and distracted people in a media-rich culture have little patience for sloppy work when deciding what to read. You can increase your chances of engaging them as readers if you demonstrate your care as a writer and show your awareness of their needs as readers, your knowledge of the topic, and your responsibility in using credible sources of information in reasonable ways.
