News may travel quickly but it sometimes takes quite a while to start

Following on from yesterday’s coverage in the Daily┬áMail and The Times, my story about the MoJ’s widely over-the-top bureaucracy for staff who drive on work business has now also reached The Scotsman and the Eastern Daily Press.

It’s an example of one of the curious habits of the media even in these internet-enabled, 24 hour rolling news times. My original story appeared nine days ago, but it is only yesterday that the mainstream media coverage flurry started.

News may travel quickly but it sometimes takes quite a while to start, a phenomenon I noted last year in a different context: It still takes 17 days for news to cross the Atlantic.
