Seriously, R-J?!?

This is a screen shot from a real e-mail I just got from the R-J. It's funny because:

(a) If I didn't know the fucking paper was going to cover that, I'm a fucking idiot.
(b) Someone took effort to distribute this despite (a).
(c) Whatever they have in the Wednesday dead-tree edition will NOT be the "latest" news and commentary because of some various pieces of newfangled technology they probably haven't heard about yet.
(d) If they're referring to their website, that's funny because their website is a joke and I'm fairly confident you're better served to look elsewhere tomorrow morning for the "latest" beyond whatever their people write later tonight.
(e) Also, this email does not provide a link to the R-J's website.

Did I miss anything?

I think you covered it.

You neglect to mention that the message was sent just as it appears -- in 48-point bright blue centered type. I'm surprised it doesn't blink, too.

Not sure if you saw it, but the RJ website actually did decent job with election night coverage. Granted, it was mostly AP content, but it was presented well.
