gbu dateline 490

I am an avid Reuters news reader.

The new web design is nice but there is more scope for improvement.

A dateline is an important part of the story, but more and more Reuters stories are missing that. Here is an example.

We agree datelines are important.

This is an irritating technical problem that is hiding datelines on some online stories.

We expect a fix to be in place at the end of the month: GBU Editor
