Go ahead and click – it gets big.
This ad has stood the test of time, certainly.
No sugar disclaimer yet, that I can see…
Here you go – where’s the name “Shine, Kristine – President” here at Newsroom Contacts?
Did somebody go in and simply delete Kristine’s entry within the past couple weeks and that’s why there’s a tell-tale glitch in the spacing betwixt entries?
It sure looks that way to me. WE’RE THROUGH THE LOOKING-GLASS, PEOPLE!*
Here’s the coding that should be in there:
<br /><p class=”email“><a href=”/web/20150713173819/http://www.sfchronicle.com/author/kristine-shine“>Shine, Kristine</a><br />President<br /><a href=”mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org“>email@example.com</a></p>
If only we could go back to see what the Newsroom Contacts page looked like a couple weeks ago.
Oh, here we go:
And this webpage here has been disappeared down the Memory Hole as well:
Here’s what that page said just a few days back:
“This is Google’s cache of http://www.sfchronicle.com/author/kristine-shine. It is a snapshot of the page as it appeared on Jul 17, 2015 11:47:36 GMT:
“About this Author: Kristine Shine is the president of the San Francisco Chronicle and SFGate.com, the Bay Area’s most-read sources of local and national news, reaching 22 million users around the world each month. Prior to this role, Shine served as chief revenue officer at PopSugar– a leading digital lifestyle brand for women. In her time at PopSugar, Shine also served as vice president of sales from 2008 to 2010, developing PopSugar’s go-to-market and sales strategy and delivering high double-digit revenue growth year after year. Prior to PopSugar, Shine served as vice president of sales at Spot Runner in 2008, and as director of sales for Microsoft from 2004 to 2008. Previously, she held online and print sales positions at BusinessWeek, and began her career in print advertising at Icon International.”
So, as stated, that’s evidence to support the recent rumors.
Oh what’s that, Gentle Reader – so what, you say?
All right, but news of her hiring last year was a BFD, right?
And then she birthed the NEW SFGate, right?
And then, a friendly, BOLD ITALIC-style appeal to local bidness:
And now she’s gone?
Isn’t this news, sort of?
But no? No coverage at all?
Hey, didn’t troubled former Interim CEO Ellen Pao make the news when she left Reddit just recently? Seems like they had similar gigs – the turning of clicks into bucks.
Anyway, who knows what’s going on.
*From Oliver Stone’s abysmal JFK conspiracy film. If you want a dose of reality, check out Case Closed from local UC Hastings Law grad Gerald Posner.
(As with Reddit, making money off of online viewers is HARD.)
That’s all I know.*

*Well, there’s this – an obsession with wringing money out of millennials / Generation Y.
But now there’s this, your Coca Cola Fiesta Variety Pack, featuring cane sugar Sprite and cane sugar Orange Fanta:
The expected rejoinder from Pepsi? Sugar cane 7-Up and sugar cane Orange Crush, of course.
We would circle and we’d circle and we’d circle
To stop and consider and centered on the pavement
Stacked up all the trucks jacked up and our wheels
In slush and orange crush in pocket and all this here county
Hell, any county
It’s just like heaven here
And I was remembering and I was just in a different county and all
Then this whirlybird that I headed for I had my goggles pulled off;
I knew it all
I knew every back road and every truck stop
I don’t think sugar-anything would be a good name these days…
[UPDATE: Marisa Lagos has the other side of the story – so put them together and it starts to make sense. Everybody wants some sweet sweet free cash from Coke and Pepsi, but nobody wants to admit they want some sweet sweet free cash from Coke and Pepsi…]
I don’t really “get” this one, I don’t understand what’s going on here.
But see if you can figure things oot, eh?
“San Franciscans United For The Soda Tax – Calls on David Chiu to Stop Coordination with Big Soda Industry
WHAT: A public call to action from San Franciscans United For The Soda Tax. The coalition will draw attention to the Chiu campaign’s coordination with the big soda industry and call on David Chiu to stop accepting campaign funds in opposition to the soda tax he claims to support.
WHO: San Franciscans United for the Soda Tax: Representative from the nurses; Adrienne Suffin, former SEIU Chapter President; Laura Thomas, Co-President, Harvey Milk LGBT Democratic Club; Arthur Welton, San Francisco Young Democrats; Juan G. Berumen, affordable housing advocate and more
WHY: Over the course of the last month, David Chiu has coordinated with the big soda industry to steer thousands of dollars of soda industry money into his campaign. The soda industry has funded $10,000 to the Chinese American Democratic Club, $7,500 to the Black Young Democrats and $2,500 to the Asian Pacific Democratic Club. Many of David Chiu’s strongest supporters, whom he proudly lists on his website and who are doing a lot of work on his behalf – the San Francisco Building Trades Council, the plumbers and the Teamsters – are opposed to the soda tax. San Franciscans United For The Soda Tax finds this hypocrisy on behalf of David Chiu appalling and is calling on him to cease accepting any resources from the Big Soda Industry.
WHERE: In an emailed press release, San Francisco.
WHEN: Thursday, Oct. 30th, 4:00 pm”

I don’t think that it’s the Diet Coke what causes diabetes, just saying.
Unless the artificial sweeteners somehow fool your body into thinking it’s getting sugar, uh oh. (I think the scientists are looking into it these days.)
Now myself, the more Diet Cherry Coke I drink, the more they bring me.
At least I think it’s diet, uh oh.
