Yesterday's news on Oscar


I've been banging on for ages now about how newspapers need to adapt to the instant availability of news on the web.

Most of the stories in the morning papers are at least 24 hours old. Possibly more.

Looks like this isn't always the case though.

The pic above is a screengrab from the NineMSN website. It was taken 5 minutes ago.

That's around 24 hours after the Oscars ceremony kicked off.

Yet it is still talking about who may win and why.

Why?

Were the team at NineMSN all at an Oscars party, leaving the news updates unattended?

Who knows.
