This is a news organization on the stick

Yeah, The Northwest Missourian kicks ass.

I just got word about cuts at the Maryville school half an hour ago and I work for a Kansas City Star newspaper. Yet even The Star has few details in its online Associated Press report.

The Missourian gives much more detail. And they had a story up at 4:45 p.m. and updated it two hours later. I am willing to bet they Tweeted it quickly, too.

Update: According to Philip Dowden, Northwest’s assistant athletics director of media relations and communication (and a former student of mine), The Missourian live Tweeted the press conference.
