The WaPo’s Chandra Levy Series

The Washington Post began its — wait for it — twelve part series on Chandra Levy‘s murder yesterday.

Is twelve parts a bit much? We think so (and so does Slate, and one blogger names “Twelve stories that deserve a twelve-part series in the Washington Post more than the brutal murder of Chandra Levy seven years ago”), but perhaps the Post is trying out a new type of series: More parts, smaller word counts.

Consider the word counts of the first two days of the Chandra Levy series:

    Sunday: 1628
    Monday: 1470

…and the word counts of the first two days of the posts “Angler” series on Dick Cheney:

    Sunday: 5000+
    Monday: 5000+
