You can’t make this stuff up! The Union did not report what the L.A. Times, Sacramento Bee and S.F. Chronicle did on their front pages: The state Legislature on Thursday approved a sweeping and historic plan to increase the minimum wage.
Instead, it ran a press release from Assemblyman Brian Dahle on page 5 titled “Dahle votes against hike in minimum wage.” Other than giving Dahle’s view on the legislation, it didn’t give the results of the vote.
In a community of “mom and pop’s” this should have been a front-page story, complete with reaction from the small business owners in town. You know, some “gumshoe” reporting.
Looking for wisdom on the Op-Ed page? The publisher has a column his choice for the “best eligible batchelor” or “bachelorette.” Much of the namedropping heaps praise on his fellow nonprofit board members.
The newspaper also has downplayed the measles outbreak, running another press release on page 5.
