SF Appeal has posted a memo Chron Metro Section Editor Audrey Cooper sent to her troops in which she says:
- “You are going to smash whomever is naive enough to poke their noses in our market. Bring it on!”
Cooper didn’t mention F. Warren Hellman’s $5 million Bay Area News Project, but what else could she be talking about? Certainly SF Appeal, headed by Eve Batey, thinks Cooper is talking about the Hellman project.
