Look At All This Nasty Fat!
The story resonated with me because I always hate to see mothers yell and smack their children around in grocery stores. I was so moved that I drove to up to Stuart to find the family and, thankfully, found them in peaceful repose. I even took this picture:
And this in from unofficial Pulp correspondent Wyatt Olson:
“How about a companion category to your Story of the Day? Perhaps you could call it Stifle of the Day. Case in point: The Sentinel's choke on the Martin Lee Anderson beating video. The story covered the front page of Saturday's Herald, but nary a graf was to be found in the Sentinel, despite the video's release making national news on Friday.
Sure, this story was Carol Marbin Miller's baby, but the Sentinel's blinkered approach is hardly a service to readers. Not that the Herald is above the same thing. As the Sentinel made hay about the FEMA rip-offs in Miami-Dade County after the 2004 hurricanes, the paper of record in that county never dug into that story. Strange thing is, the editors of both papers routinely feel the need to send reporters for day-late follows of picayune stories published by the competitor.”
It’s just more evidence pointing to the fact that newspapers are way too territor
ial, petty, and stingy when it comes to dishing out credit or sharing big news broken by local competi
tors, large and small. And all it does is cheat readers.
I thought y'all might want to see how easy it is to shoot Harry Whittington in the face.
