'Jesus, Send It To The SF Chronicle!"



Even back in 1976 they were making fun of the SF Chronicle.

  3. I remember watching that movie when it came out at theater in the east bay, and the audience cracked up at that scene.

  4. What I find comical and disturbing about the Chron is the their reporters are now infesting broadcast stations. I see Carla was a political consultant to a station. I have no problems with Phil Matier but the rest of the Chron wags are clueless.

    The other Chronicle insiders all kiss up to Slick Willie. I recall the Dean of the School of Journalism at Cal loosing it when he was told Slick Willie would be writing for the Chron and I agree.

    I think the days of the Chron are coming to an end. I have to wonder what kind of fool would pay this lot of wags for "insider access" to go get a hot dog with them?

    Professional journalists are hard to find except at KNTV these days...

  7. Editor Audrey Cooper was interviewed on Channel 2 yesterday (Monday) about the Chron's homeless series. If you haven't read the first couple of parts, save your time. They've taken an interesting subject and made it as boring as possible. And it's basically rehash from their archives. But while watching Cooper, it was obvious that the questions she was getting were told to her in advance and that she had rehearsed the answers. It would have been fun if the interviewer had dropped in a surprise question, like, "How come you're the editor of the paper, but you never write anything?" Or "Why is there so much turnover in your newsroom?" My guess is some PR guy from Hearst wrote out a script that Channel 2 followed yesterday. Pathetic.
