InlandPolitics: “Unpublished” letter to the Press Enterprise

** The following Letter to the Editor of the Press Enterprise newspaper was forwarded to InlandPolitics.com yesterday due to its non-publication.

I write in response to the story “Corruption campaign part of San Bernardino County DA’s race” by Richard K. De Atley. If you wonder why your circulation is declining it is because you have abdicated your responsibility to “investigate.” You simply report – or rather repeat whatever you are told. The public corruption in San Bernardino County is partly the responsibility of the press who act like press agents for politicians rather than skeptical seekers of the truth. You acknowledge the bloggers; making it evident that you are aware of other sources of information or “news.”

Senor Blogger
November 25, 2009

Shocking. Another day, another editorial in the Press Enterprise blasting the constitutional rights of politically-charged defendants Bill Postmus and Jim Erwin.

In a wholly-unsubstantiated editorial the PE criticizes former county official Jim Erwin and former county elected official Bill Postmus for exercising the rights granted them by the legal system.

The PE called a perfectly acceptable court motion by Jim Erwin an “assault” on that legal system, and praised the ruling’s outcome that resulted in a setback for Erwin.

iePolitics Commentary: Local newspapers display arrogance, Part 2

The ink wasn’t even dry on the this evenings earlier commentary, when hot out of the Riverside Press Enterprise editorial board comes another gem titled Enough evasion.

Last time I heard, the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights just might lead one to believe that citizens of this great country were entitled to due process under the law and the right to be judged by a jury of their peers.

Not the editorial board of a local newspaper.

iePolitics Commentary: Local newspapers display arrogance

Over the last few days we have been treated to two editorials from the local newspapers. Both pieces were in response to the firing of former San Bernardino County Administrative Office Mark Uffer by the Board of Supervisors.

The Sun newspaper column is titled “How new will direction be?” and in the Press Enterprise it’s “Why the ouster?

After reading these two gems I wanted to propose disbanding all governmental bodies across the nation and replace them with editorial boards. Not really, but the thought crossed my mind for a fraction of a second.
