To Restate The Obvious

We’ll do this one last time…

We frequently get anonymous tips after our “Tale of the Email Tape” features along the lines of…

  • “Patrick — FNC called Cali for Hillary at 12:13am. Might want to add that.”

  • “Yeah, but the Oregonian broke the Hooley news this morning — beating both newspapers by a few hours.”

But as the feature probably suggests, it’s about which publications get out their Breaking News alerts first…not which published first online or which broadcast it first on air. If the Oregonian and Fox News don’t have email alerts (we’ve actually signed up for Fox’s, but haven’t received any yet), you’re not in the feature.
