The reporters sitting in here are filing material out to The Baltimore Sun, The Hartford Courant, The Sun-Sentinel, The L.A. Times, The Chicago Tribune, The Orlando Sentinel and The Daily Press. And very few of them are reading actual paper.

By the way, also sitting in their tent is the orphaned Newsday.
