If there is a pecking order to the sending of press releases, then some of L.A.’s blogs are beating the big boys. Six days before CBS announced the breaking news that KCAL-9 would be broadcasting all Lakers games (not just the big ones) in HD, LAist had the story.
Strange that a blog would beat a network, especially as CBS shares the same corporate parent as Time Warner Cable, which made the announcement.
(For further illumination of the hierarchy, the announcement landed in our in-box eleven minutes after CBS’s announcement went up. But that’s probably because they knew sports talk makes our eyes glaze over).
