SFGate has come to this? Blogger hype about possible Mars creature

Tuesday, May 28, 2013

The Chronicle’s free step-child website, relegated to second-tier status since the advent of sfchronicle.com for paid subscribers, moves into new link-bait territory today. It offers a piece complete with attribution from a UFO blogger containing fuzzy photos of what is purported to be some kind of lizard on Mars. The blogger, in turn, says “someone in Japan” spotted the creature while scrutinizing NASA photographs. It gets worse. The byline is that of Carol Christian, a staff writer at Hearst’s Houston Chronicle, where the same thin pulp runs behind a pay wall.
