Dear Chicago Tribune,
Even though I no longer live in Chicago, I'm curious about the Blago trial, so I thought I'd check out the news on your website. It's been a while since I visited, and I have to admit that the site looks a bit cleaner and has the news prominently displayed.
However, could you work on linking teasers to what they actually tease?
Case in point: I scroll down the front page, and I pause at the "Photos & video" section because there's a picture of a giant hole in a street. It looks amazing. I want to see where it is. So I click on the link above the photo that says, "In the news: Hole eats street," and where do I go? To the "Photos in the news" section, which is 101 pictures (that's ONE HUNDRED ONE) of stuff in the news.
Look, I don't know what you're hoping for, but I'm not going to click through that many pictures to find the one that you teased on the front page. I don't have that kind of time. I still don't know about the big hole--did it swallow all the brainpower in the Tribune Tower?
Now I'm just frustrated enough that I think I'll take my eyeballs over to the Sun-Times and see if they do a better job.
