Shakin’ up the News

A large part of my job is to answer questions, and one we often get is how long it takes between when an article is published and when it hits Newsdesk. It varies, of course, but let’s look at a recent example.

On Tuesday, the eastern United States experienced an earthquake that occurred at 1:50pm EDT. 11 minutes later, stories about the quake were available in Newsdesk and the Metabase. We felt the rumbles pass through our Ohio office just a few short minutes before we finished processing the news about them. By the time we knew what had happened, so did Newsdesk.

I’ve written before about the quickness of Newsdesk in its coverage of Oslo, the debut of Google+, and the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound. Zak has written about a disaster of a different sort.
