Oregonian Feeling the Heat?

FROM THE RANK SPECULATION DEPARTMENT: For much of this week, The Oregonian, Portland’s daily paper, relegated World Cup news to below the sports section’s fold. On at least one occasion, coverage of the World’s Biggest Sporting Event fell all the way to page C5 or something.

I wonder if The O faced a barrage of angry soccer fans, and is now trying to make good. Yesterday, I noticed a bright yellow promo card inserted in a vending box promising “WORLD CUP HIGHLIGHTS INSIDE”. And today, the paper’s late edition carried a huge front-page box on the Argentina rout. Hmm. Whatever the case, they should keep it up. Maybe next time, they’ll even send a reporter!
