Sunday’s W-P carries front-page story of lobbyist Gerald Cassidy, with a two-page spread in the jump. Inside, the paper says it intends to tell the “Cassidy story in a unique way. On Monday, the series will jump to the newspaper’s Web site…to begin a 25-chapter serial narrative that will describe how Cassidy built his business,” ….how…how…and how.
A couple of things. Is this the future of news on paper? Will the thing thrown at the front porch become a mere index of website product? And does Abramoff have access to a computer?
