Well deserved! In this era of diminished journalism and sensationalism, we are lucky to have a vibrant local newspaper that does such outstanding work and does not shy away from tough issues. Thank you to the Weekly staff and all you do for our community.
The sad direction of "journalism" in general - too much promotion of the owner's interests with one sided stories . Also too much censorship of opposing views. A progressive version of Fox News. For example, I don't care if the CEO does not like the School Board, I just want the news from all angles - not personal propaganda.
Congratulations to a fine staff that works hard to show other papers how good journalism is done. The award reflects the genuine, personal caring and true professionalism that goes into putting a first-rate paper together. -jay
This is of course a joke, given the sad, pathetic newspaper that is the Weekly. I wonder what kind of incestuous relationship the weekly staff has with this organization that throws around awards. Does the weekly staff judge other states newspapers, with a quid pro quo arrangement ( you give me an award and I will give you one).
The weekly is biased, one- sided and with an agenda of personal profit first and foremost.
Nite also that one of its own staff is posting congratulations-- talk about self serving!!!!!
Congratulations, Weekly! Well-deserved, and thank you for the great journalism!
Congratulations on a very well-deserved honor. The Weekly is a real community gem.
Congratulations to all the Weekly staff for outstanding journalism and for the online edition, blogs and Town Square!
Some may disagree with the editorials, but obviously "Kitty litter liner" doesn't appreciate the Weekly's objective in-depth news coverage.
Congratulations Weekly for the well-deserved awards! Thanks for keeping the public informed and pushing for transparency in government and education.
Congratulations! We are so lucky to have such a marvelous resource. Thank you so very much.
The paper is a chronicle of local complaining -- and is it is not journalism. Not by any stretch of the imagination.
"Stories" that are weeks or months old are repeated on slow news days (happens a lot in suburbia) to drum up some arguments. In fact, stories are even resurrected from 4-5 years ago, just to drum up controversy !!!
I've found stories brought back from 2005, 2006 -- is that news?
Also, local nasty political rants are often the primary focus and it is at best a strange Libertarian forum. It is the local version of Fox non-News.
We don't ever re-publish old stories. I think you are probably referring to new online comments being made on old stories. When a reader makes a comment on an old story, it then "elevates" that story and the comments to the top position (briefly) on Town Square. If others begin adding comments, it sometimes means that a very old story becomes the subject of a new round of discussion. We don't control this; it's entirely reader-generated.
"Some may disagree with the editorials, but obviously "Kitty litter liner" doesn't appreciate the Weekly's objective in-depth news coverage."
I can understand how pat thinks that the weekly is the greatest thing since sliced bread, since they marched in lock step with her views regarding measure D ( obviously the more profitable way to go for them). However I reserve the right to consider the weekly a hack, for profit organization , even though pat may be distressed by that view.
What I do not appreciate is people who are not residents of the city trying to influence elections for their own personal gain.
Please accept our sincere congratulations for your well deserved journalism awards. We appreciate the depth and clarity you provided on the Measure D referendum, and are gratified that others recognize your contributions, (and are pleased and mildly surprised that journalists actually read one another's articles!)
We greatly appreciated that you were so thorough, objective, and sensitive in covering all the ways in which our community responded.
With gratitude for your professionalism,
Cheryl Lilienstein, president
Palo Altans for Sensible Zoning
