Nobody wants to buy their LEFTY ProPagandA! They should be ashamed for NOT Vetting the 2008 and 2012 President that they helped sell us out too then. NEVER trust the FAKE NEWS echo CHAMBER AGAIN> EVER! People really did want change from the corrupt Bushes. But it went from Bad to WORSE... That's why TRUMP WON. Now Go Pound Sand....MAGA 2020 KAG

Nothing but lipstick on a pig.
The local "stories" are still written by 20-something year-old recent J-school grads who couldn't tell you the difference between Mission and Mission Hills.
The rest of the fill is from various other publications and wire services.
The "editorial content" could be written by Park Slope Brooklyn hipsters who see nothing but privilege, racism, power, and horrible injustice everywhere they look.
It doesn't much matter whether this kind of crap is on paper or delivered electronically.
What's left of a once truly great newspaper is really sad.
