Breaking coverage you CAN get elsewhere
The local Hearst daily reports on a morning fire near downtown:
A two-alarm blaze destroyed a strip mall just south of downtown early this morning, according to televised reports.
Firefighters had a difficult time finding the source of the inferno, but with help from additional fire crews, the blaze at Blodgett and Crawford was extinguished.
Most of the units in the building were vacant. No one was injured, but crews remain at the scene as they clean up the area and investigate the cause.
It's good that the local newspaper really covers its own back yard!
Or at least deploys people to watch the television news and write about what they see on the tube that is related to their own back yard.
In possibly related news, the Chronicle reader representative notes that as of yesterday, the city desk has a new acting editor who will shortly have the "acting" removed from his title. In only his second day with that new title, he already seems to be pushing the journalistic envelope with cutting-edge coverage of the city via television news. Maybe tomorrow, we'll get coverage of what they're talking about on the city's radio stations! After all, Jeff Cohen promises they're going to "rethink the City & State section from front to back."
