Question of the Day

Yesterday's question asked: In early journalism, what common problem led to the development of the tight, inverted-pyramid style of writing that we associate with newspapers today? Hint: it has to do with an invention created in 1832. The answer we were looking for was that the telegraph would often cut off toward the end, demanding that journalists offer up the most important information first!

Congratulations to Ken Walker of the Tampa Bay Times for being the first to answer that correctly! Honorable mentions also go out to Craig PittmanHolden LewisHiram ReisnerAmy B WangSidney LengEdward TennerIrene DeBlasioEdirin Oputu and Hollywood Highlands for getting that right, as well.
