Where is the local information?

You would think that local media companies would be striving to be the source of all local information.

I saw an accident yesterday. Lots of police cars, ambulances, and fire trucks. Today, a day later, I wanted to see what had happened. I went to the local television station – a CTV affiliate – only to find nothing about it. There wasn’t even a search box on the main page. What web site doesn’t have a search box today?

I then checked the local newspaper. Again nothing.

Those are the two biggest media companies in the area, but neither provided simple information about a local event. If these companies can’t even handle the business they’re supposed to be in, how can they ever expect to be local hubs?
