Poor arena coverage

Recently, I was watching Channel 3 and saw a story telling how the Sacramento City Council had written itself into plans for the now-building Kings arena in downtown. Free admission, free parking, free use of a luxury suite that might bring in $200,000 a year on the open market for 20 years. Channel 3 had been tipped off by a Stanford researcher who studied the contract, so I wondered if The Bee had been scooped and how it was covering the story. I went to SacBee.com and continually looked. Nothing. I contacted friends who subscribe. They, too, had seen nothing. Not even a mention in a column or op-ed. Huh? A local journalist asked, "Are they embarrassed about being scooped?" Well, probably, but how can you explain this lack of coverage?
