Less than 24 hours after 2,600 employees of the San Francisco Chronicle and San Francisco Examiner walked out, both papers appeared on theInternet-- as did one by the striking workers. Both the Chronicle and the Examiner were set to go on the Internet later this month -- but the strike moved up the date to Wednesday morning. The strikers tabloid, the Free Press, hit the 'net Thursday morning, featuring favorite columnist Herb Caen and a scoop on Dianne Feinstein's bid for re-election to the Senate. The Free Press reported thatFeinstein employed an illegal alienin the 1980s, a fact later confirmed by U.S. immigration officials. Employees of the two newspapers walked off the job Tuesday night in a dispute over pay and layoffs of Teamster delivery drivers and youth carriers. Both sides return to the bargaining table tomorrow along with a federal mediator.Post your opinion on theNew Mediabulletin board.
