Anyone still get delivery of the Enquirer? Well its quality has sure declined of late and there's a blatant example today.
My morning Enquirer has two nearly identical articles in it concerning the University of Tennessee AD's comment on the SEC expansion. On page D2 is a column entitled "Tennessee AD says SEC take Caution" and on D5 there's another with the headline "Vols AD wants SEC to be Wary". These articles are virtually identical and some paragraphs do match word for word. There's no excuse for this in a paper like the Enquirer.
How does something like this happen? It makes the paper look amateurish to say the least. Over the summer I cut back my subscription from daily to weekends and stuff like this tells me I made the right call.
Of course the internet has a lot to do with fewer people subscribing to daily delivery of the paper but this sort of thing is a factor as well. It makes it look like it's being run by the 6th grade class or something.
