Trib Plasters Stadium Saga on Sunday Cover Again

Can someone please explain to me what the Tampa Tribune is trying to do?

The Trib reprinted this April 23 article on the stadium saga on April 25 with a different headline.

Read for yourself - the only other differences are the re-arranged 4th, 5th, and 6th grafs. That means my criticisms of their coverage on Thursday can be repeated on Sunday.

I have a lot of respect for the writers and editors at the Trib, but I don't understand trying to sell papers with old news. Unless the recycled material was an Earth Day promotion...

CORRECTION - The Trib says it would not reprint an article in print and while the article was published online Thursday, it didn't hit print until Sunday. My apologies.

  1. WFLA-TV (NewsChannel 8) started airing paid advertisements as though they were news stories a long time ago. It's only logical that their business partner The Tampa Tribune should be doing the same.
