Scripps Howard Kills Reagan

Web surfers discovered a 12-page obituary the Scripps Howard News Service wrote for former president Ronald Reagan marked “embargoed until Reagan’s death.” After the site got cited on a number of Weblogs, including Metafilter, Scripps Howard removed it, but you can still see it in this screenshot CyberJournalist.net preserved, plus you can read some of the pages in The Wayback Machine. This should serve as a good reminder that anything published online can be found, even if it’s not linked to. Password protect pages you don’t want others to see, or even better, don’t put them online!
