I’m wrestling with a problem. I like the Union-Tribune, I really do, I just wish it wasn’t completely worthless. Maybe (hopefully) it is just the “reorganization” that is tanking the quality of the reporting and it will recover, but thus far it’s proved this election cycle that the paper is approaching utter pointlessness.
The UT was severely out investigated by CityBeat and dramatically out analyzed by Voice of San Diego, but those publications slightly emphasized quantity over quality, and both have extreme liberal bias. CityBeat is at least honest about its goals and ideals. VoSD had a few hatchet job articles that used the art of subtledy to drive home a clear agenda.
And whoever at DIR the UT used to conduct that Prop D poll should be drug out and shot. What? Expecting 80% turnout?
Finally who could overlook this little gem that has the caption “Howard Wayne, who will replace Donna Frye on the San Diego City Council, celebrated his win at Currant restaurant downtown with his wife Mary Lundberg.” I guess the answer to that is John Gastaldo and the UT.
Get your act together guys, San Diego needs a solid, fair, and detailed major newspaper, not the b#llsh!t of the past year.
