Oh, the perils of modern technology!
Our friends at the DAILY PAPER offered readers a second chance at the news in some editions when they presented several pages from the Monday edition in the Tuesday edition. We are all used to getting “old news” in the printed paper these days, but when you don’t have a printing press and outsource the production of the largest newspaper in the state to a small time neighbor, accidents happen.
We think nothing of watching the same stories repeated over and over on CNN, 24/7, and other electronic venues. So it is no surprise to see the Statesman offer reruns. Ironically, if they hadn’t owned up to the mistake not many folks would have even noticed.
The big question now is how do they get the Tuesday news in the Wednesday paper or will they just “fagettaboutit?”
