Kudos to the San Francisco Chronicle and their team of investigative reporters Ron Kroichick and Lance Williams.
They won a California Newspaper Publishers Association award for their coverage of how Santa Clara is battling the 49ers.
“These awards reflect our unyielding commitment to serve the people of the Bay Area with best-in-class journalism,” said Chronicle Editor Emilio Garcia-Ruiz. “There has never been a more important time for local news organizations to step up and deliver for their readers.”
Of course, it’s ironic a San Francisco paper is winning awards for covering a story in Santa Clara.
That should be a big and embarrassing wake-up call to the Mercury New. Our “local” paper has traditionally done a really bad job of covering the Mission City fairly and accurately.
To add to the Chronicle’s CNPA award for their Santa Clara coverage, Santa Clara News Online is presenting the paper and Kroichick and Williams with the coveted Leg Drop Award.
