Along with leisurely weekend catch-up sessions on the most pressing current issues, get nightlife tips with reporting on Sacramento speakeasy tours, or peruse the latest fishing reports for the area's steelhead-stocked waters. Each news-packed issue arrives promptly every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, so you won't have to try to discern the latest news from your neighbor's tea leaves or by intercepting tin-can phone transmissions. Between issues, The Swarm message board allows subscribers to dialogue daily with a member of The Bee's editorial board to add an interactive spice to the traditional news soufflé.
The Sacramento Bee
"The object of this newspaper is not only independence, but permanence," said the 1857 inaugural edition of The Sacramento Bee, whose reputation for local, regional, and investigative reporting transcends its delicate reams of newsprint. Scoopy, an affable mascot designed by Walt Disney in the 1940's, brings a cheery face to the daily newspaper, whose Pulitzer Prize-winning pages teem with state headlines, entertainment news, and in-depth political coverage explained through a series of cryptoquotes. The Bee's online wing houses breaking headlines and full-length stories alongside The Swarm, where editorial-board members engage with readers through posts and live chats, exploring topics from city parking to state and federal legislation. Subscriptions to The Sacramento Bee are available in paper, electronic, and telekinetic formats.
