MLive: Putting the stale into stale news

If you go to the Flint Journal's MLive opinion page you will see a column of photos and column links down the right side.

The Opinion blogs are pretty much up to date and the community newspapers columns are relatively fresh, but if you click on any of the photos in columnists' column you will find they are anywhere from five weeks to seven months old.

Heck, some of the people listed there don't even work for the Journal anymore. One of the columns has to do with encouraging voters to get more information on candidates before the early May City election.

The sell by date of a column should be close to that of a carton of milk. What did they do with the former Internet team?
