Media Epiphany?

The media, as we know, loves a good, pre-scheduled news event, one that lends itself to photography and video. Put it on an assignment sheet weeks, months or even a year in advance and know you’re guaranteed a nice story package.

But they’re not all elections, city council showdowns, shuttle launches and summit conferences.

Just asking, but isn’t it time to re-evaluate the newsworthiness and resultant front-page coverage accorded the annual cross-diving ceremony that is part of the Epiphany celebration in Tarpon Springs?

Unless, of course, somebody wants to do an investigative piece on what happens under water.
