Today, on December 1st, Yahoo published the following year-in-review posts:
- Yahoo Buzz Year in Review: ’08’s Most Popular Stories
- Yahoo Buzz Year in Review: Top Buzzed Stories in 2008
- Yahoo Top 10 Searches, Top Trends, etc.
What’s up with doing this on December 1st? The year is only 11/12ths over. This is like doing the post-game report after the 3rd quarter of a football game, or the 8th inning of a baseball game.
And it’s not just Yahoo; Google’s gonna post their list soon, and Ask.com already did. Are they just gonna ignore December altogether, pretend it doesn’t exist?
Strange, I say.
They have been doing this for years… the news would start doing stories on ‘2008’s most touching stories,’ etc. When it wasn’t even done December. It is almost like they want to cut the last couple weeks of December out of the calendar.
I know, and it makes no sense. Poor December….
