Comcast is the email that I use. It’s also my homepage when I open my web browser. Ever since I first started taking PR classes, we’ve always discussed having news worthy stories and what not. But over the last few years, I’ve wondered about Comcast’s idea of a news worthy story. Though today is 9/11, everything on their top news feed is about remembering 9/11, but most of the time, it’s about stuff that is not news worthy at all. Some of the stories that stick out the most are what kind of new dog the Obama’s got and what they named it, the royal wedding, and stupid stuff the Lady Gaga says.
Maybe I’m just the outcast who doesn’t find stuff like this news worthy. Or, does Comcast just have a target audience of idiots? When I think news worthy, I think of financial/economic, military, natural disasters, and the government (though I tend to ignore that).
