Bay Area online news to replace horrible SFGate?

I no longer want to read the (free) San Francisco Chronicle online because of their vile, racist, homophobic comment section. I try incredibly hard not to read the comments, but it's impossible, and what I'd really like to do is no longer reward SFGate with clicks.

I've tried the Oakland Tribune and San Jose Mercury, but haven't really been able to like them. If you do, maybe let me know how you've been able to get beyond the bland and ugly layouts and actually get local news. I'm not interested in video. I like local news, good world news (but I can get that from the Guardian), but am not amenable to the same old aggregate click-bait sites that so many papers have online. Any other options or suggestions are helpful. I live in Oakland, if that's important. If you pay for the Chronicle and that's better than SFGate, let me know.
