Here's what happens to a newspaper after everyone is fired

Shortly after midnight, Random Pixels reader Alfred sent this link to the above Herald story.

Alfred asked, "Is it possible the Herald doesn't know the difference‏ between Miami Beach and North Miami Beach?" Possible. We all make mistakes.

But, the scary thing is that as I write this 11 hours later, the mistake has not been corrected.

A few days ago Gretchen sent this flub. Seems the writer didn't know the difference between "coup" and "coop."

There is some good news. Not all Florida newspapers are ready to throw in the towel.

On Friday, the St. Petersburg Times announced it was bolstering its investigative unit with the hiring of Chris Davis, a Pulitzer Prize winning editor.

Meanwhile, back in Miami, Herald honchos still haven't said if they plan to fill the void left by the recent departure of county hall reporter Matt Haggman.
