"Forget dashing foreign correspondents and “All the President’s Men”: Daily journalism often comes down to local reporters like Mr. Brandt." The smallest newspaper to win two Pulitzer Prizes -- and the last newsperson in town. #AldenExposed https://t.co/QyCogaj9mD

I came to the Vallejo Times-Herald out of college as green as green can be. It was owned by Don Rey Media Group at the time. I learned how to be a reporter there. It’s incredibly sad watching it get dismantled piece by piece by a hedge fund. https://t.co/bVyk13EbIe

Athletics Way will be lined with retail.  It will be awesome.  Great place to grab a beer or bite of food ahead of the game. The waterfront parks will be a signature item too especially with the cranes. #rootedinoakland https://t.co/UDqPz3xNec https://t.co/0dFI3cOlMw

Excellent and sobering story by @DanBarryNYT about the sole remaining reporter at a paper in Pennsylvania. Why is he the only one? Because the vulture hedge fund Alden Global Capital has stripped it of its assets instead of reinvesting. #localnews https://t.co/hUYUZ6bDUW

I'm hearing that in a few hours Gov. Gavin Newsom will announce the release of thousands of people incarcerated in CA prisons. Number I'm hearing is 8,000 but we'll see

Waste Management, PG&E, Police unions/towing/taxi/big muni contract companies and the Seeno family are found on many East Bay campaign contributions. Enough to make one wonder what individual listed has done or is asking a candidate to do, or do away with

..."Members of the community asked that the story – and the photographs – be removed from our website the next day and we did so. We apologize for the harm that publishing those photos may have caused."
