I Think The Daily Tar Heel Made A Big Mistake-Part 2

Last week I said that for the next several weeks, I will be creating content as though I were writing for  the Sports section of the Daily Tar Heel, the student-run newspaper at UNC.

Every Monday, The Daily Tar Heel has an extended Sports page both in print and online. This is usually the only time a sports opinion column will appear (usually written by either Gregg Found or Sam Shepard). My job will be to try to take their job.
Integrating the potential of the Web medium is not exactly the paper’s forte. What the Daily Tar Heel tends to do is take the articles they print on the newspapers they circulate on campus and essentially paste them onto the Internet. There are very few links (if any), and nothing in the way of multimedia. On the other hand, TarHeelBlue does a much better job of incorporating multimedia into their articles. You can expect my articles to be similar in its integration of multimedia, but with a critical eye that TarHeelBlue just won’t allow.
