Congratulations e-media, on your Hall of Fame and Shame page! It's about time the news media in this town starts doing some serious journalism.

The Media in the Bay Area is gutless. From the Chrom/Exam to the BayGuard/Weekly. There's no real writing, only polical posturing.The Chron/Exam tries never to offend their middle-of-the-road readers, the BayGuard/Weekly the limousine liberals.Publish some material from some conservative or skeptical sources for crying out loud.Challange your readers. Instead it's becomes a "tell them what they want to hear" instead of "tell them what they need to know". I'd rather shell-out more for the Manchester Guardian to get some real news. There's a big world outside of the Bay Area.
