I’m not going to dig up the links on the DDN site- or try to tell you what days the stories ran (bad blogger)- but, there is a trend: stories about Downtown restaurants get bigger headlines than suburban ones when the news is bad.
Case in point: The very large Villa D’Giovanni in Fairborn closed this week– and got a mere 2 inches in my print edition. The reasonably sized Encore- closed this week in Springboro- and got a mere 2 inches. Both had at least 30 employees- and new high rent buildings.
They aren’t even closing yet- not until Nov. 30.
When the Blue Moon closed in the Oregon District, with their 20 employees- it was front page news. Same for Mediterra. Same for Olivias. Why the bias?
