Some of us followers are still looking for some examples of that "aggressive online coverage that the Pleasanton Weekly has pursued. " I guess it's a matter of definitions.

Great column, Tim. I am also worried about the unfortunate condition these days of our Fourth Estate, and I fear that our evolving society has lost an important watchdog. Nevertheless, many thanks to you (and your mentors) for carrying the torch during better times for journalism. I was only a newspaper carrier for the Valley Times in the late 70s/very early 80s (when kids still had paper routes), but I appreciate how much it was a golden age that may never be seen again.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
