It seemed like a good idea ...
Unfortunately, this example from The (Colubmbia, S.C.) State shows what's wrong with shovelware in a Web 2.0 age.
Look at the last line.
There is no "related story on this page" and -- it's the Web, dang it -- there's no link from that to the related story elsewhere on the site.
Newsrooms have got to learn to fix things like this. Yes, it may be hard the way they are set up, but it is imperative because it signals an operating mentality.
