To be fair, today was a solid day for local content. Nearly all of the pieces in the sports section were by Star
authors, mostly covering Pac-12 Media Day, and the front of the news section was heavy on local news (including a continuation of the extensive giraffe-in-peril coverage). Tomorrow may be another day, but they got nearly everyone still employed there in action today.
Today's score (not including briefs, notes, editorials or the other non-bylined pieces):
A: Star bylines, 12; Non-Star bylines, 19
Sports: Star bylines, 4; Non-Star bylines, 1
