In southwestern Queens we are fortunate to have access to four weekly papers. Some cover our local news better than others.
Unfortunately, one of the four was congratulating itself last week on winning the New York Press Association Award for General Excellence. In my opinion its editorial content does little to educate its readers about local South Queens events and happenings. It does contain an abundance of advertising, though (and the editor’s weekly column is almost always about the editor’s family affairs).
I must conclude by saying that compared to the NYPA award given to this other paper, the Chronicle is deserving of a Pulitzer for its coverage of South Queens news!
