Wednesday, July 22, 2009 Preview Not Encouraging

The Ann Arbor News was a great newspaper. Will be a great on-line news source?

We don't know yet because it's late getting up and running (not a good sign but understandable). I have to say, though, that the preview being offered is not encouraging. The lay-out pictured reminds me of a free, pre-packaged blog spot, which is fine for individuals but is supposed to be a professional outfit.

And then there is the "coverage" of the Ann Arbor city council meeting by someone who has been in town less than a week. Great.

Too bad all the laid-off reporters can't put together their own competing operation on-line.
