Blogging Trials

Tuesday, April 24, 2007  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Contrast the Los Angeles Times’  trial blog of the Phil Spector murder trial with Mark Steyn’s work for Macleans at the Chicago trial of Lord Black.

The Times has a unique opportunity to gain a vast online audience with the interest in the Spector trial, but its live blog is antiseptic, wholly without humor, and so spare as to make it easy to skip.  Mark, by contrast, has gas. 

Memo to the Times: Send your best writer. A funny, irreverant one.  Yes it is a serious matter, but the coverage doesn’t have to be dull as a result.
