San Francisco news in Seattle? It’s courtesy of Hearst

Friday, August 31, 2012

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer is the Hearst-owned former newspaper turned online news operation that Hearst has taken to supplementing quite a bit with . . . news from San Francisco.

Today it’s a “Tech Chronicles” item about an only-in-San Francisco rideshare service that gets posted to SFGate by Chronicle staffer Ellen Huet (along with the Matthew Earnest photo). One difference: the P-I makes no mention of Chronicle staffer Huet. Instead, its credit tag says: “Posted by Seattlepi.com staff.” Hmm.

Here’s the SFGate post. And here’s the Seattle P-I’s post. They appear to be identical, except for the credit line.
