Saskatchewan newspaper reports on no news
It’s not something you expect to see – a newspaper reporting on no news. Yet that’s what happened Tuesday at a Saskatchewan newspaper.
The Battlefords News-Optimist front-page story reflected the lack of news in the community west of Saskatoon:
“To be truthful, there isn’t really anything happening in the news this week,” started the front-page article.
“Not that it isn’t worth picking up the paper, there are some interesting things inside. But, it’s January, the weather has taken a nasty turn and there just isn’t much happening.”
It then went on to report on a recent dumpster fire.
“Not really exciting, but that news item does make one wonder about the mentality of someone torching a dumpster in sub-Arctic weather,” stated the story.
People took to Twitter to comment on the apparent lack of news.
The Battlefords News-Optimist tweeted out that there will be news in Thursday’s edition:
