The Associated Press had a great story on the Turnverein fire. Which daily papers ran it?
The Belleville News-Democrat, on the front page of its July 6 St. Louis edition.
Guess which daily paper did not run the AP story, while also not updating its own scant coverage. That’s right, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, which had earlier ran the pathetic headline “Firefighters battle blaze at old athletics complex.”
Once again, the Belleville News-Democrat has better coverage of the city of St. Louis than the Post.
