And, in what was essentially a first, so was the Tucson Weekly.
A 500-word recap of the protest by Saxon Burns--whose expanded coverage of the march can be found in this issue--was actually one of two breaking stories we posted online on Monday, April 10, accompanied by an e-mail newsletter flash to our electronic-newsletter subscribers. The other story was an earlier version of my story about allegations of sports/academic fraud at the UA. (The Citizen's coverage of the same hubbub--which in that article was called an incidence of "favoritism"--was the top story in that paper the following day.)
While the Weekly will always keep its longer-term, more in-depth focus, and daily-style coverage is not part of our long-term plans, don't be surprised to see more Web exclusives and breaking-news updates at tucsonweekly.com. After all, if something is important enough--and, in our humble opinion, both the downtown march and the brewing UA controversy were--then why should we wait for the print version? Especially with the upcoming launch of our Weekly blog, tucsonweekly.com will become a destination you'll want to visit more than once a week.
If you haven't bookmarked our award-winning Web site yet, that's something you might want to consider doing.
