Newsworthy? Not So Much.

Proof that either A: NC has not gotten as big and grown-up as we'd like to think or, B: a writer/producer at WRAL still has a chip on her shoulder for not being crowned homecoming queen.

See, I don't really consider that need to know or important enough to have emailed to my blackberry. I guess that's one way to drive traffic to your site on a slow news day to sell online advertising. I was really tempted to unsubscribe last week when I got a brief summary of the recently un-sealed documents from the Eve Carson case (a prime example of the lack of class by N&O)... and this really tips the scale even more. I bet that's not exactly the type of traffic WRAL was anticipating from me, huh?
