The death of a newspaper

More evidence today that the once mighty Miami Herald continues to die a slow, painful death.

Featured on the Herald's website this morning - and labeled "Breaking News" - is a story about a Miami Gardens firm that has racked up some 2,000 Better Business Bureau complaints.

However, the story was first reported by the Palm Beach Post's Susan Salisbury and posted on the Post's website last Friday.

I guess I'm old fashioned, but shouldn't the Herald have learned of this first?

The Herald does a great job covering Haiti.

But, it might be nice if those who run the paper could find some way to devote one-tenth of the energy it takes to cover an island more than 700 miles from Miami and focus on issues that actually affect lives here at home. After all, Miami Gardens is just 10 short miles from the Herald.
