The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a jury and judge’s award of damages and enhanced penalties to K-Tec Inc., which makes and markets Blendtec home and commercial blenders, from Vita-Mix Corp., a rival Cleveland-based manufacturer.

OK, so the week of Thanksgiving is a slow news week — but this is getting ridiculous.

KSL’s Randall Jeppsen today filed this breathless report about Orem-based blender maker Blendtec scoring a high honor by AdAge, which named Blendtec’s famous “Will It Blend?” campaign the No. 1 viral video ad campaign of all time.

Cool, right? But a closer read of the AdAge story reveals that it was posted on Sept. 2, 2010.

Further proof that this is a slow news week: The Cricket almost jumped at the story, before reading the time stamp.
