Miami Herald Deathwatch (cont.)

Further proof today at Miami Herald.com, that a once powerful South Florida media giant is in the final throes of death.

Here's what was posted this morning in the "Breaking News" section of the paper's website. (Click the image to enlarge.)

Nude food: Sushi restaurant serves it upon 'tasteful' models

Apparently some at the Herald truly believe that a tacky publicity stunt qualifies as "breaking news."

Breaking news, by the way, that one TV station had five days ago.

And, don't forget, before the year is out you're going to be asked to pay to read quality journalism like this.

The Herald is slated to move to its new Doral headquarters in less than a year.

Before that happens, I predict that incompetent management will destroy what's left of the Herald.... but not before the paper's few remaining, dedicated professional journalists die of extreme embarrassment.

Stay tuned.

  1. After somewhere 40 years of subscribing to the Herald I will be stopping my subscription in March. Have been noticing and also writing letters to the effect that the newspaper is dying a slow death.
