What’s in a name?
It’s often heard complaint in news desks that the news day is too slow. That is when there isn’t tsunami or nuclear emergency on the way. Slow-news-day.net likes to keep it that way, slowly paced. If it’s news, if it’s interesting, it’s still news after the fact. If it’s enduring piece of information, people will come back looking for it. Slow also implies weighted. When all hell breaks loose, one doesn’t need rumors or exaggerations, but weighted information and opinion.
