wellll, to be fair, Mike. at least The Post's Neely Tucker realized it a good 10 months ago:

Well, yeah, I know that the Post has been covering it - even the same topic - here's one of my blog posts about from December: http://comicsdc.blogspot.com/2009/12/disneys-newest-princess-and-question-of.html

But "Post continues to write about Disney movie 2 months after official release" wouldn't have made an interesting headline, would it?

Still, keep me honest!
