Writers Matier and Ross vs. the PR Flacks of the Presidio Trust

Monday, February 9th, 2009

Well read it for yourself, from Messrs Matier and Ross:

“The folks at the Presidio Trust have just issued a glossy, 26-page annual report with this slick introduction: ‘It’s 6 a.m. in the Presidio as the sun rises over the Golden Gate Bridge.’”

This is a problem because, supposedly, El Sol only rises above the East Bay Hills or something. But the quote from the report is actually:

It’s 6 a.m. in the Presidio as the sun rises over the Golden Gate Bridge and the City of San Francisco…”

See? There are plenty of photos out there showing sunrise over the bridge itself. It all depends on your perspective, of course.  

If M&R are getting into the nitpicking corrections business, maybe they should start with their own column. One short bit about purported “attorney extraordinaire John Burris” a while back was rife with actual errors but nobody complained about that. 

 

Can’t we all get along?
