WordPress for large scale publishing

Felix Salmon talks Content economics on the Reuters blog.

Off-the-rack CMSs like WordPress and Drupal are OK for small-to-medium sites, but aren’t particularly well suited to be the framework for a major publishing operation.

Okay. Though I find it hilarious that such a comment is made on a blog whose parent company utterly failed building a custom solution, and had to resort to using WordPress to do rudimentary web publishing things, like linking. I don’t know though, it’s not like WordPress runs half the top 100 blogs or anything.
