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.

Miami Herald grave robbers at it again!
Herald's threadbare Broward homepage runs 15-day old story as Breaking News to fill-up space!


Shades of 'The Donald Misdirection,' wherein the Miami Herald intentionally ran a weeks-old story about Donald Trump's consideration of a presidential run as "Breaking News" on their Broward homepage, sometimes as one of Top Three stories in all of Broward County, WEEKS after the story first appeared online, and, yes, WEEKS after he formally announced he would NOT run.


It didn't matter, though, the Herald desperately wanted eyeballs, so there that story stayed, day-and-night, day-after-day, week-after-week. Who needs editors!


I wrote about this subject the first time on May 16th in a post titled, Answer: It's about Donald Trump. Question: Why is a month-old story still on Miami Herald's Broward homepage under 'Breaking News'? Blame Jay Ducassi, http://hallandalebeachblog.blogspot.com/2011/05/answer-its-about-donald-trump-question.html.


I then followed-up on May 18th due to continued grave robbing of old stories with a post titled, Donald Trump Redux is further proof of the Miami Herald's gross incompetency and fundamentally-flawed idea of (and coverage of) Broward County in 2011.




That the Herald is so oblivious to both reality and public perceptions, and continue to do such a piss-poor job of covering Broward County issues, personalities and trends in an intelligent fashion, not to mention, local government, that they have to resort to running old stories to fill-up the space that ought to be more properly filled with CURRENT stories on those subjects, tells you plenty about journalism as practiced by McClatchy's Miami Herald under publisher David Landsburg and executive editor Aminda "Mindy" Marques in the year 2011.


What do you call the anti-Pulitzer Prize?

Do you see the link for the last story under Breaking News in the left-hand column?

  1. That is why nobody reads it and going broke. Now they will have to pay a fee to Hallandale Beach for each newspaper dispenser so I assume there will be fewer places to buy it. The Herald only have to blame themselfes for failing.
