I think he was always like this, but I was too busy to notice until now.

Here’s a look at some of the work we’re most proud of:
We formed a special news desk to provide greater coverage of a critical issue in our community -- the Bay Area housing shortage.
The team has produced over 200 stories from affordable housing initiatives to the construction worker shortage to President Trump’s $200 billion infrastructure plan. More recently, you’ll find their in-depth coverage of who’s to blame for the housing shortage (it’s not just tech), reports of landlords sexually harassing vulnerable tenants, income inequality in the Bay Area is among the nation’s highest and, as indicated by the record-shattering $2 million sale of a modest one-story home, Sunnyvale has become the region’s new hot market. Here’s what our executive editor Neil Chase had to say:
Bay Area News Group journalists, who produce coverage for the East Bay Times and the Mercury News, were the first to uncover problems with the city’s inspections and permitting of the Ghost Ship building, initially reporting the issue less than 12 hours after the blaze. In subsequent days and weeks, the coverage expanded to encompass the lives of the victims, mostly young artists and musicians, and the housing crisis that has driven so many Bay Area residents into substandard dwellings like the Ghost Ship.

Ask any NBA fan who the best team in the NBA is, and they will likely say Golden State. But are the Warriors as good as advertised. Dieter Kurtenbach of the Bay Area News Group wonders if the league’s best team is really all its cracked up to be.
In his podcast, Daily Dieter, Kurtenbach analyzes the biggest stories from the Warriors, Raiders, 49ers, Giants, A's, and Sharks every weekday with his trademark irreverence, insight, and wit. You can subscribe here.
