It's official: The San Francisco Chronicle has finally jumped the shark.
Prominently displayed on the paper's Web site today is a new feature called Seenster which is the Chron's "new photo feature full of big fun at local bars."
Click over to http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/g/a/2009/06/22/seensters.DTL and you get a nice assortment of primo bimbo shots from a San Francisco bar along with photos of various drunken buffoons.
I'd love to know what idiot in an executive office at the Chron was behind this absurd new feature.
Don't get me wrong. I love clueless, scantily clad young women as much as the next pathetically overweight dirty old man, but that's not why I check SF Gate several times a day.
I have this funny notion that when I surf over to the Gate that I'm going to get my fill of news.
Guess I was wrong.
No wonder newspapers are dying.
Could the Hearst Company just put the Chron out of it's misery and pull the plug now?
