The Nathan Fletcher/U-T San Diego split has evolved into a controversy, according to some local news outlets and the newspaper’s executive editor. So we thought we would bring you up to speed. Here’s a quick recap:
First there was this from the U-T: The question for Nathan Fletcher: What does ‘move to the middle’ mean?
Then this, wrapped across the U-T’s front page on Sunday: Editorial: Carl DeMaio for Mayor of San Diego
Then Team Fletcher: Fletcher Responds to UT San Diego Editorial Board Endorsement Litmus Test
Then this, stripped across the U-T’s local section (NOTE: Web headline is different from what was in paper): Fletcher: Principled or Panderer?
Then this from KPBS: U-T Editor Doesn’t Want Filner in Mayoral Race
Then this from the Filner Campaign: Downtown Insiders Fear Filner
Then this from U-T Editor Jeff Light (from his Facebook page): Response to a reporter’s questions on the controversy of the purloined tape
Then this from 10News: U-T San Diego Mayoral Endorsement Stirs Debate
And from today’s Morning Report: U-T’s Editor Responds to Controversy Over Candidate Comments
