The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has just reprinted an article it credited to the Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel that included the following sarcasm-free paragraph:
"Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy."
That's a fancy, bullshit-laced way to say that "Tangerine Tango" is "orange." For the record, PantoneÂ® 17-1463 Tangerine Tango is this color:
Also for the record, the article is a thinly plagiarized copy of the Pantone press release trumpeting their new color (dated December 8, 2011). That would be deplorable in a news report. However, it seems that the "article" that the AJC is crediting is in fact an online fashion blog by Rod Hagwood (found here). And blogs, as we all know, can steal anything they want to.
This probably says something about the quality of the reporting in the AJC, but I suspect that it's something we already knew.
