Post.com Tool Gate: What’s The Big Deal?

From Kevin Drum:

    Then check this out: the Washington Post has a story on its front page right now about an electronic glitch that caused an incorrect headline to appear on their website for 51 seconds on Thursday. It’s a scandal!

    Can we all please Get. A. Grip. If the executive editor of the Washington Post thinks a 51-second software hiccup is a “big story,” he might want to think about early retirement. The job is obviously too stressful for him.

    The flip side of this is how, like those confused lab rats, journalists also frequently underreact to genuine problems merely because it’s the unwashed blog hordes who are yelling about it. That can be a topic for another day.
