Well, fancy that: Yahoo

Well…thanks a lot, Yahoo…

As an avid Ohio State Buckeyes fan, I was a bit shocked and appalled at the news that the mega search engine Yahoo broke about head coach Jim Tressel’s prior knowledge of the scandal that plagued the Bucks football team in the winter.

*Sigh*…however…for the sake of journalism I feel compelled to tip my news hungry hat at them. In today’s world, anyone can be a journalist. Anyone can land that breaking story and it is all due to social media and search engines.

Frankly, as a newpaper purist, it makes me a little jealous, but then again it makes me and every other journalist want to try harder to keep up the pace, so… thanks a lot, Yahoo… for the healthy competition.
