Who Needs Coverage Of Stuff Like the State Legislature Anyway?

I can't believe I missed this in last week's Roundup:

And layoffs continued to ravage the Capitol press corps yesterday. The San Jose Mercury News released 40 employees Monday, including Sacramento reporter Kate Folmar. Steve Maviglio writes in the California Majority Report:

"I've been on the receiving end of Kate's daily probe for Capitol gossip and info. Try as I often might, I sometimes was stopped in my spin tracks with Kate's no-nonsense-get-to-the-point-you're-full-of-it comebacks. And just about every conservation has a patented "ok, what else do you have," as she tried to get a unique angle to the many straightforward stories that eminate from the capitol on a daily basis. I'll miss those calls -- unless, I hope, another big city major newspaper adds her to their staff."

Hear, hear.
What the hell, Merc? Badly done.
