Yesterday’s news tomorrow?

The Union posted a “sneak peak” (sic) of the front-page of Tuesday’s newspaper on Monday evening. This blog already had published the news from two of the four bylined articles, as well as shared it on social media:

The sale of the National Hotel, on Sunday: https://sierrafoothillsreport.com/2018/02/11/its-official-national-hotel-sold-to-boutique-hotel-group-led-by-hotelier-jordan-fife/

District 3 Supervisor Hilary Hodge’s first campaign finance report, on Feb. 1:

I hope the staff isn’t looking up to its paid contributor George “Biz Bits” Boardman as its role model for journalism! lol

  1. posted Saturday night on Twitter, online on website: Packed night at the National Exchange Hotel bar in Nevada City for the last night before closing for the next 8 months or so. The building has been sold to new owners that plan to renovate the more than 150 year old bldg. More in next week’s The Union. #theunionnow @TheUnion

    1. Yes, Liz I saw that. So what? That same information was reported this past weekend on Facebook by Niel Locke, Reinette Senum and countless others who took “selfies” at the hotel. Our magazine published an article in January saying the hotel would soon be sold. This blog was the first one to publish the detailed press release sent from the owner, which included the name of the buyer, his background, the plans for renovation (down to the Frette linens), and on and on. The Union was a day later. Duh.
