New Times blew it, dear readers.

In a March 22 article entitled “How to Vote in Arizona’s Presidential Preference Election Today,” it states that voting that day would be “super-easy.”

As the whole world now knows, voting in that election in Maricopa County wasn’t “super-easy.” It was a complete cluster-f#$%.

“When it comes to thin, superficial political coverage, nothing surprises me anymore.” — Dan Gillmor, journalism professor

If there’s a consolation for New Times in failing to predict trouble, it’s this: All of the other news media outlets in Arizona (with one brief-but-notable exception) also did an exceptionally poor job covering the issues that led to the Election Day fiasco.
