Where’s the News?

by Kim Taylor

When I was younger, “Where’s Waldo?” was hugely popular.  I was probably a smidge older than the typical demographic, but I had every book and would spend hours thumbing through the pages looking for the red-and-white-striped character.

Save for the red and white, I felt an instant feeling of nostalgia when I opened OrlandoSentinel.com today.

I get it; ads pay the bills, but where’s the news?

    In the “good old days” of print, we were taught in journalism about different styles of layout … one of which was known as “circus” — a look pioneered and prized by The Denver Post. It was only a single ring when compared to this three-ring monstrosity.

    That IS horrible!

    Add to this insult to journalism the fact that reporters are often being asked to publish incomplete stories with these words at the end … as if they were hawking papers on the a street corner: “This is a developing story. Check back later for updates.”
