A lot of people had a good laugh yesterday courtesy of the ChicagoTribune.com’s home page gaffe featuring the cat and “Headline test here” heading. This was the second highly publicized embarrassment for the Tribune in the last week and a half.
The Sunday (7/21) Tribune’s front page featured a story that later turned out to be highly falsified (as noted in this past Sunday’s paper).
As for yesterday’s mishap, classify that as one hell of a web exclusive. Those who still only read the paper missed out on that one.
Who says the Trib isn’t committed to digital?
