Less than two weeks ago, the Herald ran a fluff piece about how the Miami condo market is supposedly recovering, as more renters move into empty units. I called their bluff on this blog, noting that in fact, out of 11,800 new condo units that came onto the Miami market in 2008, only 36 percent have sold. Burnett, of course, included a similar figure in his story.
This makes you wonder about the communication skills among editors at the Herald. How can a positive condo story run a couple of weeks before a negative one that contradicts it? Isn't that a tad bit confusing for readers?

This is the Heralds response to an article that appeared in last weeks New Times. In that article, they showed how every area in South Florida is dealing with this issue and they also called out The Herald for running a front page story that tried to make this seem like a positive thing.. lol, now, this week, The Herald runs their own version of the story.. monkey see, monkey do
