Lt. Governor John Garamendi’s visit dominates both newspaper’s headlines, especially when another bomb scare grips HSU officials forcing the Lt. Gov to evacuate the scene. The TS, perhaps after splurging yesterday with all its court coverage, took a break for the most part , instead focusing on a good localized story on the bailout.
The ER, aside from regurgitating the same news as the TS for the most part, beat the TS on education reporting, something they have easily done as no one seems to be focusing on that beat anymore at the TS unless a big event happens. Maybe they’re too busy at the courthouse to care about the schools.
