>News about Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal allegedly lying about serving in Vietnam last night pushed our staff to embrace some new (for us) technology to get information to you as quickly and effectively as possible – and involving you the most – over the past 24 hours.
We’ve created a special page HERE with all of our Blumenthal coverage.
We posted an editorial about the situation this morning, and turned it into a LIVING EDITORIAL
, updated after Blumenthal’s press conference today and to incorporate unfolding reaction from our readers.
And … we live-streamed video from the press conference, with help from friends at our sister paper, the New Haven Register, and we held a “live chat” session at the same time, so that readers could watch the press conference and talk with each other and with editors and reporters at the same time.
to check out the archive of that chat session.
It is a tool that we will most certainly be using again, and we’d love to hear your feedback about how you think live chat can help us cover local news and sports.
