The News?

Obama is making his first trip to Europe as president?
GM and Chrysler going bankrupt?
The proposed Washington State budget and deficit for next year?

Nope! None of these things were the biggest news on the Seattle PI's new web only news site yesterday. Instead the top story according to the Seattle P.I.... Madonna adopting another African baby.

Yet somehow, people act like Hurst shutting down the PI was a bad thing. Maybe they should change the site from the Seattle Post Intelligencer, to the Seattle Celebrity Rag And Prattle, or Seattle CRAP for short. As that name comes across as more appropriate.

A good example would be yesterdays landing page for the Seattle Times, the local paper that is still in business.
