Everybody's A Winner!

The Times- Standard mentioned today they were awarded either first or second place for a couple news categories in the California Newspaper Publishers Association Better Newspaper Contest.

One of the stories mentioned was the homeless series by writers Durant and Faulk, Homeless In Humboldt. Interesting that particular story received criticism from Media Maven, Marci Burstiner, among others.

The North Coast Journal also received their fair share of awards in the contest, as reports our very own Hank Sims in this week's Town Dandy.

Not to be outdone, the Eureka Reporter racked up a few awards themselves, as they mentioned earlier this week. I can't find the piece online to link to, though.

Oh well. I guess the important thing is the way this all worked out: Nobody's a loser, everybody's a winner. Doesn't get any better than that, does it?

Update: I'm told by someone from the Eureka Reporter that the awards they mentioned weren't from the same contest. I guess I should have spent the time to find the article in the hard copy.

Bah. It should be searchable on-line.

It's all part of the vast ER conspiracy. They delete even articles that are flattering of themselves. Kill the infidels!

The Media Maven panned reporting that went on to win awards? I'm shocked! Simply shocked!

It wasn't reporting - it was "public interest" and not investigative reporting. Yes Fred - its a shame that the TS can't do more than fluff pieces or reprinting the Associated Press.
