Checkbook Journalism

I've been remiss in failing to acknowledge the column that Don Kazak wrote about The Burning Squirrel Report in the Palo Alto Weekly. Thanks Don...let me know if you have problems getting that check to clear.

Thank you also to Don. Without this article I would have never known about BSR and my life would be incomplete, at best...

So, Bob, spell it out for us ... happy or unhappy ... the photo of Jason Blair says it all, eh?

Bob,
How much did you pay old Don for that piece. I doubt it cost you much since the Palo Alto Weekly will print anything the shines a negative light on their rival daily. I love the weekly, but if I wanted to know what the Daily was doing I would read the Daily. Why does the weekly think they have to report on every little thing the Daily does? I only write this to you because I know the Weekly wouldn't print it.

Cheers,

Is it just me or is the PA Weekly a little jealous that they don't have someone as whitty as you blogging about them?

the weekly has tons more local palo alto news, rather than NYT reprints. it gets my vote for the true local news.

the back of my cereal box has more news than the weekly. how can a rag that publishes just twice a week really have "tons more" local news? define true local news, soft fluff?

I think I know who 'anonymous' is. Bob, you should be flattered — big names are reading your blog.

I agree with annon about the cereal box. If the Weekly weren't put into my mail box twice a week and it didn't make such a good coaster I wouldn't even look at it. I don't read the Daily News either though. I'm a SJ Mercury News man.

Anonymous--What are you doing reading blogs. Today's Merc ran an anti-blog op-ed from an assistant professor at San Jose State. He should know. Please stop immediately--it isn't healthy.
