Local News Outlets' Online Presences
- Palo Alto Daily Post: Only some articles are available online. From Dave Price and Jim Pavelic (founders of the Palo Alto Daily News, back when it was an active and excellent local paper). Published at 385 Forest Ave. near Waverly St., downtown Palo Alto. This paper is the standard-bearer for local news.
- San Mateo Daily Journal. A major independent paper (owner is SMDJ LLC, publisher is Jerry Lee) serving the mid-San Francisco Peninsula, published from 1720 S. Amphlett Blvd. #123, San Mateo. It's pretty good.
- Outlets of Embarcadero Media (formerly Embarcadero Publishing Company),
450 Cambridge Ave. off El Camino Real, Palo Alto:
- The Almanac: local news about Menlo Park, Atherton, Portola Valley and Woodside. Office at 3525 Alameda de las Pulgas, north of Gordon Ave. Very much a Chamber of Commerce mouthpiece. Also operates useful free classifieds site Fogster.
- Palo Alto Weekly, daily variant, and Community Calendar.
- Mountain View Voice
- The Six Fifty (Web site only; food & entertainment)
- Outlets of Digital First Media (owned by hedge fund Alden Global
Capital, which has gutted the newsrooms of the owned news operations),
- San Mateo County Times, formerly San Mateo Times. Doesn't really exist as a newspaper since its complete dissolution in 2016 (following over 100 years of local prominence), so now it's just a Mercury News Web-site subpage. Local coverage by Digital First Media (formerly MediaNews Group) as part of its Mercury News operation in San Jose. This ownership resulted from the takeover in 2006 of the former San Mateo Daily News (run by Dave Price and Jim Pavelich of the then-real Palo Alto Daily News) by Knight Ridder, and then dismemberment of Knight Ridder in 2009 and sale of all of Daily News operations to MediaNews Group (renamed in 2013 to Digital First Media following merger with 21st Century Media).
- The Daily News (formerly Palo Alto Daily News, but now consolidated with the San Mateo, Redwood City, and Burlingame Daily News operations). Currently operated as an extremely generic and bland suburban paper by Digital First Media of Denver (formerly MediaNews Group, formerly McClatchy, formerly Knight Ridder, formerly Dave Price and Jim Pavelich). Note: Despite the name, it's been published (on paper) weekly since March 2015.
- Peninsula by Palo Alto Daily News. A slightly different reshuffle of the Digital First Media / Mercury News coverage. A morning daily newspaper.
