Press Telegram vs Long Beach Register

So far, it looks like Long Beach Register is kicking Press Telegram's butt. For an example, here's two stories on the same subject:
The Parrot Invasion of Long Beach
Clearly, the Long Beach Register beat the Press Telegram in terms of conciseness- except they didn't bring up the poaching aspect. Granted, the point is stupid, but it's a fact of the story. Much more info on the parrots, their habits, the range of species in the LBRegister piece.
Sorry Press Telegram.
They didn't attempt to seriously examine what the future might hold regarding the population increase, and our agricultural community. Do Parrots like Avocados? What about strawberries? How hardy are they in colder temperatures? Are they moving further north, or south? Fruit-eating parrots could wind up being a huge multi-million dollar problem. The fact that the PT missed the most important point of the story is ridiculous. They're worried about POACHERS!! LB Register touched upon the subject, but didn't pursue it much. At least they mentioned it.
One other odd thing is both papers interviewed the SAME liquor store owner.
Why did that happen?
In any case, LB Register's Kelly Puente handed PT's Joe Segura his hiney on this one. Hopefully he'll get off his lazy old rump and get better at his job before he's kicked to the curb.

Oh, and to be fair, the PT had more, and far better photography related to the story. LB Register had one lame picture, that sucked, so PT gets an honorable mention for that.
When I read a story about parrots, I want to SEE parrots!!
