City Paper is not for tourists
Gotta credit Eli Saslow and the political team at the Post for the presentation on page A1 of today’s edition. Saslow came in with an insta-story on the Hillary delegates who are “still bitter” about their candidate’s standing in the presidential race.
Obvious story? Maybe, but look at it this way: As soon as Hillary finished her speech, just around 11 pm last night, I hit the sack.
When I got up, there on my stoop was a fully realized, extensively reported, on-the-spot piece on a major issue in the Democratic Party. At lunchtime, I opened the New York Times and found nothing so pressing, so of the moment. There was some stuff about race and how convention speakers weren’t playing up Obama’s as well as some news analysis and something about Ted Kennedy.
Good to see that the Post‘s flood-the-zone approach to convention coverage might be yielding a dividend or two.
