Trailing behind

The Danish daily "Politiken" brings the story about the possible poisoning of the Ukrainian politician Yushchenko - a couple of days after it last circulated in the UK, was mentioned on these pages and several months after it took place. And I see that all the time - Politiken picks through Guardian's thrashcan and brings it a week or two after.

Perhaps that is just the existential conditions for Denmark, for the intelligence agency Forsvarets Efterretningstjeneste (as discussed in this blog) and for the press - a chronic dependency on all the big boys and their superior network of human resources/HUMINT.

How can the Danish information workers stand out in this competitive environment?
