Reporting The Important News

Here's a quick news-related quiz. Which of today's news events was deemed major enough by the editors of four major local newspapers to be featured with a color photograph on the front page (both online and in print) today?
  1. A prominent figure said something stupid.
  2. Some chick continued a political protest.
  3. A sports team played a game and lost.
  4. A criminal apologized for his crime.
  5. All of the above.
  6. None of the above.
If you guessed (A) then congratulations, you stink at guessing! However, if you guessed (C), then you win the prize!* Yes that's right, the Seattle Seahawks played an inconsequential pre-season game of football last night, lost by 8 points, and made it to the front page of The Seattle Times, The Seattle P-I, The Tacoma News-Tribune, and The King County Journal. Thrilling! I sure am glad we have such intrepid news outlets in our area, always keeping on top of the important stories that matter.

* For the purpose of this post, "the prize" refers to three (3) swift kicks to the posterior in addition to a four-year-old block of molding mozzarella cheese named Bill.
