Wausau | This hed looks like an editor's reminder

That's a screenshot of what I found in my in-box this morning when I checked the latest batch of Google News alerts for anything Gannett-related.

But I don't find this editor's note in place of a hed when I went to the Wausau Daily Herald's website. I think it originally went with this story.

Maybe it got caught after Google scraped the story from the Wisconsin paper's site?

  1. That content is still in the page source, although its generated by javascript and the setting that calls it is currently not set. I worked for a Gannett property that was fortunate not to have to use the horrible Saxotech CMS so I'm not sure of what combs of the publishing process exposed this headline.
    If I have time later, I'll try to see since it is a js (browser) activated feature that I can probably fiddle with without credentials to the site.

    BTW... it is quite easy to hack a Gannett site using the Saxotech CMS, submit the content to google and temporarily come up with things like you brought to attention in the blog

    var _sections = {
    frontpage: 'Umbrella Page',
    article: (function(){
    var _artPN = '';
    if(location.href.indexOf('cmsedit') > -1) _artPN = '(cmsedit) ';
    _artPN += 'Need logo to run with series explainer.(U02013309150176)';
    return _artPN;
    section: _cat + ' Index',
    classifieds: 'Classifieds: '+_cat+' listings',
    search: 'Publicus search results: ',
    gallery: (function() {
    if(_PI.title &&
    return 'Gallery Title: '+_PI.title+' ('')';
    return 'Gallery Title: Null';
    tngallery: (function() {
    if(_PI.title &&
    return 'tnGallery Title: '+_PI.title+' ('')';
    return 'tnGallery Title: Null';
