    ... but maybe if it gets said often enough it'll start to sink in at the top.

    NEW YORK (AP) --- The sky is blue, according to a new study released Monday.



    Sorry, Headbutt, had to be done. :)

    This is exactly what we've been saying and predicting for years. Nobody should be surprised ... well, okay, I admit the pencil-necked geek beancounters running the show are going to be absolutely stunned at this development.

    Whaddya bet this gets absolutely no play in the papers? (Especially those that have employed slash-and-burn tactics to try to preserve untenable 20-plus percent profit margins.)

    ¶ Still, 56 percent of the editors surveyed said their news product is better than it was three years ago because coverage is more targeted.

    ¶ "There's an improvement in enterprise, in investigations and in the coverage of several core beats," the study quoted an unnamed editor of a large metropolitan daily talking about his staff's coverage, not the makeup of the paper overall.

    Those 56 percent are either lying through their crooked teeth, or they're plain fucking stupid.
