Without this blog, The Union’s weekly columnist “Bored Georgeman” wouldn’t have a column this week.
Weeks later, “Bored” follows up on this scoop about a homeless center (which serves lunches to people in need) next to the Nevada County Economic Resource Council’s new headquarters and ballyhooed Digital Media Campus — more or less parroting the irony I mentioned, with his own dig at “San Francisco values.”
In the column Bored throws this blog a bone, writing: ” (This juxtaposition was first pointed out by local blogger Jeff Pelline, a loyal reader of this column.)”
But as most newspapers do nowadays, he should have stated the name of the blog, Sierra Foothills Report, and provided a hyperlink to the outfit that gave him the idea. Oh, and this story should have been on the news pages too. I call this “damning with faint praise.”
