Baby steps. But perhaps there’s hope that under new leadership the Chron will no longer suck quite so bad.

That would deprive locals and industry watchers a reliable source of cocktail party chatter (why does it suck) since at least as far back as 1976, when Jason Robards playing WaPo editor Ben Bradlee in “All the President’s Men” cracked that the Chron was the place to place “yesterday’s weather report.”

Still, worth the sacrifice.

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
