On the other hand, print fails a lot, too

The other day (was that Monday? feels like a week ago), I woke up and went to work already aware of the earthquake in Italy, having first heard of it the night before via Twitter, of course, and BBC News.

The woman next to me on the subway, reading Metro? If as for many, that’s her primary source of news, she was oblivious. I don’t know how much coverage the major papers gave the event but there’s no way they were as up to date on the news as online media.

Don’t depend on print. You’re probably missing something.
