RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
At some point papers realized that they could replace writers with a macro to typeset AP content and ads. (USA Today anyone?)
People figured out they could get the same AP content without the advertising through sites like news.google.com.
Now the papers are desperately trying to localize content so people will have a reason to pick up the local paper. But there is only so much they can wring out of last night's High School game scores.
Reeks of desperation to me.
