CNN.com is experimenting with an alternate format, the news shirt. You’ll find them by clicking on the little t-shirt icons next to the news headlines on the CNN website. I wondered who would wear these headlines:
Russian Missile Obliterates Spy Plane
Citizen Tickets Cop for $540 Violation
Blind man grabs, pummels intruder
Synchronized swimmers faint in unison
Maybe it’s me, but this feels like this a marketing strategy gone berserk. According to the CNN FAQ “With CNN Shirts you can wear the news.” The question is. . . why would I want to?
