This is where word of mouth travelled faster and got reported much earlier than the print news media.
On Jan 26, it was reported on WDWMagic that a performer (the "Bird") in Cirque Du Soleil's La Nouba fell off her perch. It appears to be a rather serious accident. Yet, strangely enough, no print media had a report on this till yesterday, Jan 30. A short blurb appeared in the Orlando Sentinel finally. That's 4 days after it first appeared on a Disney fan forum! Unbelievable!
Usually accidents like this get publicized like wild fire in the media. Wonder why this didn't catch on?
Oh, for those who don't know the connection to Disney with this story, Cirque Du Soleil's La Nouba has a permanent residence in Downtown Disney at WDW. It's a wonderful show, not to be missed, even if you've seen it on TV.
