The Omaha World Herald having 18 stories about the Nebraska match, while having to buy one from a writer in Texas for the Jays, not so fantastic. Actually, downright embarrassing.
Outstanding writeup from DeMarinis but, in defense of the World Herald, it's not like their crack sports staff was just sitting around the office seeing how many pencils they could stick into the ceiling. They're out digging up stuff, probing for hard-hitting stories.
Just one example. In this morning's paper, Sam "you gonna eat that doughnut?" McKewon and Rich Kaipust gave us this nugget on page 3 (I don't know how it didn't make page one): "Riley's ...two favorite snacks aboard the plane: little bags of almonds and little bags of Oreo cookies". (And to think it took TWO reporters to uncover that)!
And people still ask, "where are today's giants of journalism"? Woodward and Bernstein would be proud.
