BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — We try not to pick on other media too much, but wow… if you suffer from epilepsy, we suggest staying away from the Palm Beach Post’s new website. It might lead to a seizure.
We know that the Post, owned by Cox Media, just fired a significant number of workers. And we know that times are tough for those who still print news on paper. But we’re not quite sure where the news is located on PBPost.com.
Ads dominate the entire page. There are photos that may lead to stories but it looks more like the color sample section at Home Depot than an index of events important to a region. And the “premium” news section is somewhat bizarre. Is this like buying a car and paying more for leather interior? In today’s paid premium section: details about Best Buy’s Black Friday deals.
Do you really need to pay the Palm Beach Post to learn about Black Friday deals? Here’s an idea, and it’s free: go to BestBuy.com. Click on the Black Friday ad.
We appreciate anyone and any organization that tries to cover the news. But the Palm Beach Post is playing a game that can best be summed up with this phrase: “If you can’t convince ’em, confuse ’em.”
It appears that Cox Media is running PBPost.com much like strip clubs have to operate due to city ordinance in Tampa — where full nudity isn’t allowed.
If you have lots of pretty images and flashing lights, you won’t realize that there’s nothing much going on inside.
