It is a holiday weekend for many. Many news organizations try to sell the slogan that “the news doesn’t take a holiday and neither do we.” Apparently KOAM doesn’t hold to that philosophy.
A quick glance of KOAM’s website shows that the news stories haven’t updated since Thursday. That is 48 hours since the news section of their website has been updated. In my mind, this is unacceptable.
I know what some of you will say: you are the pot calling the kettle black. There are periods of time when your blog isn’t updated frequently. I would say that there is a huge difference between a news organization that gets paid to cover the news and a blogger who chooses to cover it.
Even Four States Homepage and The Joplin Globe have updated since Thursday. It is unfortunate that the #1 station in the four states isn’t living up to that standard online.
