San Antonio Better than Houston According to Study

By September 9, 2010

I came across a very interesting article today regarding a tourist study paid for by the city of Houston. In it, they were judged on several areas that could appeal to visitors like restaurants, culture, family friendliiness, and more. Then the results were added together and Houston (along with many other cities) was given a composite score.

San Antonio ranked higher than Houston did overall. While the Alamo City ranked higher overall, Houston did win in a few categories (such as the arts and urban activities).

I think this is good news overall for San Antonio. However, what I don't think is good is the tone that the writer of the article takes in regards to the results. Almost the entire article is biased and in some parts, downright childish. Is this the best reporting that the San Antonio Express-News (who partners with the website in question) can put out?

I know everyone is entitled to their opinion, and that is what Mr. Bragg was putting forth. However, as the only paper in town, the Express-News has a responsibility to the people of San Antonio not to embarrass us with poor writing and "nanny nanny boo-boo" type articles regarding other Texas cities.

Anyone agree? Disagree?
