Your map is filled with misinformation.

You list the Daily Journal in San Mateo but what about the Daily Post in Palo Alto? Are you saying they don't exist?

Also, the Burlingame Daily News, San Mateo Daily News and Redwood City Daily News closed last year. Why are they shown?

And are you aware that the Berkeley Daily Planet only publishes one day a week?

Otherwise good job on the map!

As per Weekly policy, you'll never correct it.
