Lawmakers upset about San Francisco Oil-Spill Communication
San Francisco residents and lawmakers were upset when they learned that there was a delay in the Coastal Guard's response when there was a huge fuel oil leak from a damaged ship earlier this week.
There was a four hour delay before the Costal Guard arrived.
Also they had originally reported only 140 gallons of oil that leaked, when in actuality it was 58,00 gallons.
Arnold Schwarnegger declared a state of emergency to clean up the mess and help the wildlife.
MSNBC.com reported this story and had a strong article.
They quoted several important people, and discussed the affects to the wildlife which is important to the story.
They also had some good sources to attribute to in the story.
The San Francisco Chronicle had several more quotes since it was a local story for them.
Also they had it in a very chronological order with times, and more detail.
Overall it was a better article because it was longer and more informative.
