Being shown how it's done

The Columbus Dispatch's Ohio Primary 2008 blog is just kicking the Enquirer's Politics Extra's ass on this big Tuesday. The Dispatch has been on top of things all day, reporting on the impact of the heavy rains and alleged irregularities. The Enquirer posted nothing between 8:30 a.m. and about 2:45 p.m. In that time the Dispatch had 22 posts.

At 3:46 p.m., the Enquirer said, "Jon Craig reports: Voters in Adams and Perry counties have been given permission to vote provisionally at their county boards of elections because of severe flooding at polling locations." The Dispatch had that at 2:12 p.m.

The Enquirer is the worst paper in the country. Today (Thursday March 6) the coverage of Ohio's important primary is stuck on Page 8! Wednesday they didn't have coverage, I assumed because the results weren't in when they went to press. (Although other news outlets were reporting Clinton would win, The Enquirer's Wed. headline was "Wild One in Ohio"
and said the race was close.
Given no coverage on Wed. I assumed Thursday (3/6 would bring in depth detailed, front page coverage but no the primary was stuck on PAGE 8 and the focus was on Obabma's lead in delegate count
not on CLinton's surprise win in Ohio and Texas. Give me a break. Even in you are an Obama or McCain supporter, you must see that the Enquirer's coverage of Hillary Clinton is decidely negative. Let's not even speak of Peter Bronson's ridiculous column.
Please, someone, provide us with a better newspaper!!!!

Interesting. My Enquirer was totally different from what 7:26 am describes. I saw "Clinton wins Ohio, McCain clinches." I wonder if 7:26 am had an earlier edition?
