The Big Behind

Talk about being behind.

HuffPost this week writes about how MTV is trying to engage the youth vote with a fantasy election game.

But, as it turns out, it really is the early bird that gets the worm. The hell with the late bird.

The NYT had a story eight months ago about how how MTV dropped the “Choose or Loose” campaign and picked up — yeah, you guessed it –  a fantasy election game. They write, “But its campaign coverage will exist more robustly online, on a Web site that promotes voter registration and that will feature a fantasy election game.”

Correction: We initially had the story by Michael Calderone. The story was not by him but a summer intern. The confusion surfaced in a tweet sent by Calderone. His stories have bylines; other HuffPost medias inexplicably sometimes do not. Apologies to Calderone for the mix-up.
