UPDATE: Stephen Herron over at Drinking Liberally in New Milford is seeing the same thing happening in the news aggregator website. Go over and see his take on the subject through the link above.
Above is a screen cap from yesterday's Capitol Report main page. The red oval shows THREE headlines all pointing to the exact same story, which happens to ask questions about the lease agreement Attorney General Dick Blumenthal has with Democratic State Central for office space.
I can see one headline being required to bring attention to this essentially pointless story. Yes, they probably should sign a lease, even though State Central doesn't even own the building; it's a sublet. Thank you Norwich Bulletin for pointing that out.
Maybe even two headlines, because the story also briefly discusses Merrick Alpert's silly "Chicken Dick" campaign to get another debate. Which, by the way, isn't helping Alpert at all, and in fact is making him look like a joke candidate. I liked him better when he stuck to the issues.
But three headlines? I mean, c'mon Tom! I know it was a light news weekend, but couldn't you put in a story about the Huskies women in the NCAA Final Four last night, or maybe link to the tragic story about the 19 year-old local Marine who lost his life in Afghanistan?
Does anyone really need THREE links to that same story?
It just seems to me that any story which raises any vague doubts about the Democratic candidate often appears to get more (and longer) coverage than stories that detail actual GOP shenanigans.
I promised you I'd point it out when I think you're not being fair, Tom. I'm just sayin'...
