Eric's Fall TV Preview: Multimedia and More, Including Politifact Video
Here is the cover for Sunday's Floridian, which really isn't reproduced on the Web site anywheres.
You can't really read the clever lines in this version. But if you click on the image, you get a large, sharp version of it, and you can see all the cool spaces we invented to describe fall TV.
The full shebang hits the newspaper on Sunday. As I noted in the previous post, it's important for couch potatoes to get something they can pull out of the newspaper and hold onto. We ran it a little late this year, but that just means we have the benefit of time to contemplate it all.

My other life includes some work as a musician. So when the folks at Politifact said they were going to do a music video to publicize the site, I quickly offered to play the part of boneheaded drummer.
I do believe this is the first time a major metropolitan newspaper has ever done a music video. And it's a newsroom affair from top to bottom -- our Deputy Metro Editor Chris Ave wrote the song and a member of our web publishing team, Adrian Phillips directed it.
