Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Stop running Miami-Dade stories in the Broward section of the Herald website!


June 7th, 2009, 3:15 p.m. screenshot of Miami Herald website's Broward news section.

Stop running Miami-Dade stories in the Broward section of the Herald website just because you've made a conscious decision to stop covering local govt. and public policy in even a halfway serious fashion.

You aren't fooling anyone with your self-evident apathy, and are only appeasing/rewarding all the unethical pols who are only too happy that the paper doesn't show up to cover their public meetings, esp. in Hallandale Beach, where the Herald hasn't sent a reporter to a City Commission meeting in over a year.

As of 3 p.m. on a Sunday afternoon in June, this section has five so-called stories:

1. Five sentences about a Broward budget workshop on TV Tuesday.

2. A list of Broward births from May 1st-20th.

3. A 12-sentence Palm Beach Post story on a struggling program at FAU.

4. Friday's weather in M-D.

5. "Coral Springs home could be yours through $50 raffle."

So that's what passes for "news" in the 4th-largest county in the
4th-largest state in the U.S.?
Really?
