Tuesday’s primaries in Florida, Ohio, North Carolina, Missouri, and Illinois are very important–so much so that the Washington Post has christened the day with two different super names: “Super Tuesday 2,” at 8:45 AM, and “Super Tuesday III,” at 2:45.
“Can we get a ruling for consistency sake whether it is Super Tuesday 2 or 3? We’ve got two heds on the homepage right now calling today different things,” Post homepage editor Amanda Finnegan wrote in an email to the National Politics staff.
Ask for a ruling in a newsroom and you’ll likely get one: Today’s contests are now officially Super Tuesday 2, topic editor Doug Wong replied. Though, confusingly, the Super Tuesday III headline persists.
Sorry, March 8! You just weren’t that super after all. Or maybe you were.
