Emerald Puts Content on Website

Sure, they’ve sort of done it in the past with the Westmoreland story. But ODE Senior Photographer Kai-Huei Yau bucked the trend by posting content intended for tomorrow’s paper, *gasp*, today. Will Thursday’s Ol’ Dirty readership drop due to this breach of protocol? How will advertisers react? Has journalism itself been sullied by this act of Internet reporting? Finally, what do the SPJ guidelines have to say on the matter? The blogosphere is abuzz with questions!

But seriously, it’s a pretty funny little piece. And to the Emerald‘s credit, they’ve treated the recent day’s attention whoring in the EMU Amphitheatre with about the same level of respect that it deserves: none.

  1. Ian says:

    Second: I am the Photo Editor despite what the website says on certain pages.

    Whoops, I went by what was attached to the article, not the staff listings. My apologies.

    Sixth: Fried chicken and beer, anyone?

    Hell yes. Can’t this Friday but we should get some people together for a pre-finals excursion sometime in the next few days.

    Only the OC will notice.

    Heh, true. But now the ENTIRE INTERNET knows I noticed!

  2. Steve Neuman says:

    Megs is right. The paper was done early and I finished uploading really early too. I figured, what the hell. Only the OC will notice. Kai is also right – he is photo editor. ‘Nuff said.

  3. Timothy says:

    Dude, Tyler, you made me watch Godzilla versus the Smog Monster. You do not have room to talk.

  4. Tyler says:

    Kai deserves absolutely no scorn or derision for his photog skills. He does, however, deserve a heaping helping of scorn and derision for his decision to sully my house with a four-hour long movie from Ghana called Occultic Kingdom, which is honestly the stupidest, most inept thing I’ve ever seen, and yet I’ve seen it twice.

    I’m sorry, but all I think of when I think of Kai is Occultic Kingdom. That will be his legacy.

  5. Kai-Huei Yau says:

    First of all: I’m famous now! Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would make it on the Commentator’s blog.
    Second: I am the Photo Editor despite what the website says on certain pages.
    Third: I don’t upload stuff and don’t even know how to do it.
    Fourth: As Matt P. said, it was breaking news that our millions of online readers deserved to know about.
    Fifth: That sucks that they don’t let you guys stay in the building later.
    Sixth: Fried chicken and beer, anyone?

  6. Miles Rost says:

    Then they should have fixed it! *ba dum bum!*

  7. Matt P. says:

    It was breaking news!

  8. Slade says:

    That shit never happened when I ran your website.

  9. Meghann says:

    They probably just finished the paper early tonight, Ian.
