If you want a clear idea of just how silly, how irrelevant, Bay Area media folks have become, consider this: we have a fairly significant story about a major newspaper whose Warriors' beat reporter and his editor have repeatedly copy and pasted several articles.
Deadspin has jumped all over it and the Columbia Journalism Review had the original story.
Not surprisingly, the Chronicle isn't talking --other than EIC, Audrey Cooper saying "We talk 'this matter very seriously." And parenthetically, according to my Chron sources, the wheels are in motion in the upstairs conference room for someone to take the fall over this embarrassing development.
The far more telling angle is that virtually all Bay media has ignored the story. KCBS announced a benign story shortly after the 8 AM news but it was short and quick.
Predictably, KGO Radio was mum. So too, the "Sports Bleeeder", KNBR, which has both Chronicle and Warriors' tentacles across the board. In fact, God forbid the day if a major news/non-sports story occurred --KNBR would probably still be talking to Cliff from Fremont about the 49ers' secondary. They simply have no capacity of covering news stories --they're an embarrassment to the news-gathering business.
This journalism malfeasance isn't surprising anymore but it appears to be close to a mini cover-up. That too isn't so surprising.
