USA Today Lives Out Its Name

On a day when more than 70 unarmed protestors have been shot by Yemeni security forces, USA Today leads A1 with a story about airline fees.

Not only does this story lead, the same story (by the same author) also leads the next section, B1.

The headline of the News section’s opening spread? Black-White Marriages Increasing.

Not until 8 pages in do we hear anything about Yemen, a small blurb under the headline Yemeni Protestors Wrest Control of Base. A whole five sentences.

FIVE SENTENCES.
