Where did you play the TW debacle?

Discussion in 'Journalism topics only' started by Evil ... Thy name is Orville Redenbacher!!, Dec 3, 2009.

  1. So where did your newspaper play the Tiger Woods saga?
    We have played the whole thing in sports.
    The first day (Sunday?) was a brief (Woods involved in car accident).
    I don't think we had a story on Monday, but have had inside stories Tuesday, Wednesday and today.

    What was that paper that didn't put Obama's election as president on the front page? What did they do with this story?

    We put it on the bottom of the front, decision involved the fact that tiger is extremely famous, not just because he's an athlete, also from his endorsements, etc.

    I think it got the front sports page on a slow local day last week, otherwise I don't think it's been mentioned much.

    I don't think we've had a word on it. We're hyper-local.

    Maybe you could go out to the beer joints and see if any if the waitresses have slept with Tiger.

    Localize the story, dammit!

    It's been inside, on page 2, until today's edition. We needed another story for the front, though I'd have preferred it to be below the fold.

    Bottom of sports front first day, which was appropriate. Two sports front columns since, each pretty lame. An inside sports story every day.

    But our 1A tease the first day --- "Wife rescues Tiger" or some bullshit variation of that headline --- made me cringe because it was obvious something smelled rotten.

    Denver Post had it on sports front Saturday morning. Mostly inside sports since then. Until this morning, when it was bottom of 1A.
