"Finding affordable housing just got a bit easier for DeSoto and Hardee county residents," says the story lead.
Uhm. No it didn't. First the funds have to be released, then the agencies must find a contractor, pull permits, assemble crews -- in other words, actually build the houses. Nothing "just got a bit easier," except writing a lazy lead that's a lie because it's months ahead of the event it claims just happened.
In fact, in the process of slapping a congressman's packaged news release up on the Web, no reporter was asked to pick up the telephone and find out when the residences' certificates of occupancy are likely to be issued. That's when finding affordable housing will get a bit easier.
