In the era of pay-outs and a general state of hemorrhaging staffs I often wonder why Nola.com still bothers putting national news on their front page anymore. I honestly thought hyper-local was the way things were going.
Baltimore mayor goes on trial after being accused of stealing needy families’ gift cards
Now I get it. It’s local because we too have a tossed-up Mayor but at least he isn’t stealing gift cards from needy kids! See the local link! I am going to be keeping an eye on these so-called “national” news stories and making the link to how it matters to New Orleans. Haven’t figured out why baloon boy was on the front page though. I guess they felt left out of the clusterfuck.
