Proof of lag time btwn alternative/international media and MSM
Edited on Sat Nov-12-05 01:02 PM by Chalco
This new topic is awaiting edits. It was started by Chalco.

The Ombudsman at the Washington Post has asked for proof of my claim that there is a lag between when I learn about something newsworthy and it is printed in the Post. I noticed at the start of the Bush administration that it would take approximately 9 months for the mainstream media, which includes the Post, to report on what I had already gleaned from alternative and international media. The delay meant that issues that were "hot" had cooled off by the time they were finally reported on. Over the course of the ensuing 5 years the delay between when I learned something and the Post wrote a story about it gradually lessened so that now the turnaround seems to be about 24 hours.
