So … let’s talk about Fidel!
Yesterday, CNN listed the news of Fidel Castro’s resignation as a top story on both their “CNN.com News” and “CNN.com WorldNews” RSS feeds … but the titles were different.
World – “Castro resigns as Cuba president”
US – “Castro quits as Cuba president”
This is funny to me. I’d like to see the focus group results that decided how to title these RSS feed stories:
“OK, so people who sign up for our ‘world RSS feed’… they probably listen to NPR, listen to music from ‘Explosions in the Sky’ and ‘Wilco’ and use big, fancy words. But the people who get the ‘U.S. RSS feed’ …. they probably watch reality shows like ‘Big Brother’ and wouldn’t care if Castro resigned from the Cuban presidency … but if we say that he ‘quit’ just like Neil ‘quit‘ from Big Brother 9 last night, that sounds scandalous!”
