[QUOTE=MissDisney;1114078]I hate the Orlando Sentinel, by the way. That paper will cover any news from WDW it can cast in a negative light, so I was expecting the article to be the usual pablum. But this does seem newsworthy (well done at long last, Sentinel). I am sure the EE procedures have been re-adapted to address the light pole issues in storms by now.[/QUOTE]
I’m just wondering if your complaint is aimed at the on line version or the actual printed paper, which does differ from the on line version.
They do print plenty of positive theme park stories. Just keep in mind that the nine main parks and five major waterparks, along with hundreds of tourist spots, tourism is the most important industry in central Florida, so there will be enhanced coverage of everything bad and good that happens, be it an accident, a ride breakdown, or a major incident, or for a park opening, major announcement, or special event.
Overall, the Sentinel and its Fort Lauderdale cousin, the Sun-Sentinel, are better than average papers by all measures.
As a side question, whatever happened to the Paterson papers and the Newark Daily News? We know the answer is the same as what happened to the Miami News and the NY Herald Tribune as well as papers from coast to coast. They went away for various reasons and never came back.
