How do they miss so many stories?

Look at the headlines on this page, not one of them has yet appeared in the local daily newspaper;

  • NStar strike settled [Globe]
  • What does a wind farm really look like? [Coleman]
  • Wareham Man arrested after Kennedy threat [S-Times]
  • Christa's accused killer finks on friend [Herald]
  • Otis could get nuclear waste [Globe]
  • Red Tide closes Pleasant Bay, Chatham Harbor [Chronicle]
  • Cape Wind wins Scargo Café "Sand Poll" [cct]
How can any journalist miss this many major cape stories for this long? How does The Cape Codder and The Herald get to run stories about a second Christa killer for a week while our daily doesn't notice? How can their sister newspaper in New Bedford scoop them on a Ted Kennedy assassination attemp in Wareham, or the Globe know about Otis being used as a nuclear waste dump for days and days before our own daily? wb

It’s just a hunch but I suspect the C.C. Times is ignoring the pro Cape Wind stories on Cape Cod Today because it’s all low quality propaganda.

O.K. That's one headline. What about the other six?

Is it ignorance or apathy?
They don't know & they don't care.

Com'on man. It's Memorial Day. And besides, no one reads the Times on the weekend. They're saving the news for tomorrow.

In response to the comment from "anonymous" about the "low quality propapanda" stories at about offshore wind farms in Denmark, thank you for that wonderful compliment. I agree - as propaganda, the stories are of low quality. For the real high-quality propaganda, read and listen to what comes out of the Alliance and other opponents of Cape Wind - now that's propaganda!
Any thoughts, Mr. or Ms. Propaganda - and just out of curiousity, any reason why you won't share your name with us? - as to why the Times won't send a reporter to Europe to write about offshore wind power over there, seeing how the first such project in the US could get built in the paper's back yard, and the Times is quite willing to spend the dough sending reporters to any number of places around the globe?
