A tactic unworthy of a good newspaper

Oct 31, 2014

“Sacramento must separate Measure L from the mayor,” proclaims the headline over the Sacramento Bee’s lead editorial Thursday. The newspaper’s editorial board has advanced this specious position before, and I suspect it was bombarded with ridicule. Why else would this … Continue reading
