[UPDATE: Ah, well, TBI reacts by fixing the MACALLISTER typo, but by not fixing the map. You see, Gough doesn’t dead end here and Laguna doesn’t dead end here neither. The Bold Italic is written like it’s produced by minimum security prisoners in upstate New York making 11 cents per hour, IMO.]
Here you go, “Where Are The Cheaper Rents in SF?”
Gannett Co. Inc’s money-losing (millions and millions so far) San Francisco media experiment is, once again, taking on an issue of concern to newcomers:
Where Should I Live And What Does Where I Live Say About Me?
Except this time it’s a dump from TBI “partner” Zumper, whatever the Hell that is.
So all there’s for the low level TBI people to do is make the accompanying graphics to break up the grafs.
Oh, here we go:
So, you know why the rents are cheaper here generally, GANNETCOINCTHEBOLDITALICZUMPER? It’s because of all the federally-subsidized housing projects.
Oh, but you knew that and you showed that you knew that. So that’s good, I guess.
But actually, the area you’re showing is mostly PJ’s and concomitant parking lots? So the small number of readers you have won’t be able to actually move in, right? I can think of just one small area, in the upper right, where your data points come from. Is that what you’re talking about, TBIZumper?
Anyway, that’s why streets like Buchanan and Octavia dead end here, because of the Redevelopment, right?
Except Laguna doesn’t dead end, it does go through, right? Do you know that, TBI? The map says that you don’t know that. (And a good thing that Laguna doesn’t dead end, else the climate in this area would be even more muggy, if you know what I mean.)
And how many people at TBI looked at “MACALLISTER” and said, “Looks good to me, no problems here?”
But check it, the typos aren’t the problem, they are just the symptom of your problem.
“…here in San Francisco, we’re striving to create our own culturally significant publication that captures the city in such a thoughtful way…”
So, TBI, do you really think you’re a culturally significant publication? Do you really think you’re capturing the city in a thoughtful way?
So, TBI, do you really think you’re:
“a San Francisco-based website building a cultural narrative of the city for both locals and tourists?”
Well, I can see that you’re aimed at tourists but I don’t know about cultural narratives and whatnot.
All right, enjoy your high burn rate.
And enjoy your unsustainable clubhouse on Page while you slap a few graphics onto your partners’ pretty-much-worthless content.
And enjoy your self-indulgent field trips that really really super serve your readers.
END OF LINE.
