Now That's Efficient!


Today's entry comes from one of our local news stations, whose new motto should be, "We report the news before it happens." 

A news story said that a grass fire was reported at 5:30 p.m. However, according to the time stamps when I first saw it online, the story was posted and updated at 4:40 p.m. and 4:42 p.m. respectively - before the fire was reported. 

The story was updated again at 6:49 a.m. the following day, but not to fix this typo, which is still alive and well:

"...the fire burned about 1/4 of an acres..."

I'd like to believe that someone's stumbled onto one of those really nifty time manipulation machines, or perhaps perfected the art of looking into the future. But something tells me that's not the case.
