UCSD cash speaks with loud Voice

Wow. At first glance, I thought VoiceofSanDiego.org had taken out retaliatory advertising space at the top of Matt Potter's Reader column. But no, this was just one illustration of the regular mutual back-$cratching that occurs between online VO$D (financed principally by businessmen Buzz Wooley and Irwin Jacobs and "member" contributions) and the extremely business-friendly wing of UC$D that is Exten$ion run by Mary Walshock. Here the old journalism "wall" between advertising and editorial has disintegrated. If VOSD CEO Scott Lewis' does lecture UCSD audiences on "the future of media," he will join former GOP Assemblyman and failed GOP/Dem mayoral candidate Nathan Fletcher, another Irwin Jacobs' Qualcomm employee, who last year was a quasi-instructor on "government" at our university on the hill.
