This article is what is called a “bagger” in the jargon of journalism. A bagger is a report, article or column prepared in advance to give editors and producers some content to plug holes in newspapers, newscasts and whatever online line-ups are called. Baggers are mostly in demand in the summer or at Christmastime when many staffers are on holiday.
