So, now it's news?

Having spent the bulk of my adult life as part of the MSM, as bloggers now refer to the "mainstream media," I usually try to avoid mentioning certain things for fear of seeming self-important now that most of my efforts are directed online.

But, sometimes, mind you, the MSM is way behind the curve in topical news. I find that happens with particular regularity in coverage of the beverage industry.

The latest example: Barron's Online has an item today about the switch from high fructose corn syrup to cane sugar as a beverage sweetener. An interesting topic, and certainly one of great importance to dollar-minded businesses and health-conscious consumers. But it's not new news, even from such a paragon of business reporting as Barron's.

As evidence, here are links to my stories on the topic -- published back on April 22 and May 22.
