Papa Doug offers U-T employees exclusive hotel deal they'll never be able to afford on their shitty reporter salaries

Oh, you fortunate reporters at U-T San Diego, how we envy your chance to live "the grand life."

Via an email sent to staff in March, the daily's new pooh-bah, "Papa" Doug Manchester, is offering his "colleagues" a chance to sit in his luxurious lap with this generous deal on stays at the Grand Del Mar. If you're not familiar, that's his triple five-star hotel where the horses smell like fresh-baked cinnamon rolls, the golf pros look like young Arnold Palmers and the spa masseuses all have 14 fingers on each hand. At least, that's what I would expect for the price. The cheapest rooms go for about $395, but if you work at the U-T, you can score one for as low as $245 on a weeknight, $345 on the weekends.


Is there a journalist in the country who can afford that? OK, maybe one.
