I enjoy reading Rockwell. He likes to laugh at himself as well as others. He doesn't take himself too seriously. He has a common sense and frugal approach to photography. His own photography is heavy on saturation, but that's what he likes or thinks that's what most others like as well so that's what he produces. I suspect he thinks it sells better.
While he'll get into details like pixels because that's what people like to read about, he really doesn't think they matter much. Good photography is good photography. Keep it simple, he says. We shouldn't get caught up the sales hype from camera manufacturers that he also like to laugh at when they screw up.
When reading Rockwell, you have to discern the nuggets of gold.
