Play Along At Home: Where Is This Newspaper Website From?
from the the-web-is-global,-remember dept
Earlier this year we wrote about newspapers that put up websites that don’t indicate the location they’re based in. Thanks to various news search engines, it’s increasingly common that you may end up on the website of a “local” newspaper that is anything but local to you — but where you have no clue what “local” is. Even worse, they often include generic descriptions of places (“the valley,” “the river,” “the north side”) which mean absolutely nothing to you. E-Media Tidbits is griping about another such site where even the webcam shot of “downtown” showing the local weather is perfectly ambiguous. So, we’ll let everyone play along at home: just how many clicks does it take you to figure out what’s “local” for The Truth Online.
